Description ravingdesi 2014-06-19 13:46:44 UTC
Problem description: 
When adjusting a connector (e.g. arrow) and then saving it as pptx, all adjustments appear to be lost.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17406199/bugtmp/Bug11.odp

For me this resulted in 
3. Open again in impress or MS powerpoint

Current behavior:
