.ppt which doesn't import properly to LibreOffice

Tested this on 4.2.7.2 on Linux and 4.3.5.2 on Windows, same behaviour.  Open up the attached .ppt in LibreOffice and the writing in the table is gibberish.  Strangely, when I double-click on the table to edit it, the Hebrew text looks correct in the edit screen.  However, when I go back to the document (even just pressing Esc so that my edits are discarded), there is more strange behaviour.  The table changes position on the slide, and the fonts are now more like Hebrew (but utterly wrong in placing).

On the basis that most LO devs probably don't read Hebrew, I uploaded https://www.dropbox.com/s/ne0cqwbo1x5v5sr/correct-hebrew.png?dl=0, so you can see how it should look / how it looks when it's opened in PowerPoint.

Let me know if you need any more info to assist the fix.  I guess this can affect anyone trying to import Hebrew .ppts to LO.

Thanks Roman, indeed the bug still occurs. NB I accidentally deleted the dropbox link to the correct display - if anyone ever works on this, let me know and I'll try to get another screenshot from someone who uses Windows (not me).
Comment 6 Buovjaga 2019-09-22 12:49:09 UTC
Still confirmed the wrong initial display and already in 3.3.0.

I created bug 127698 for the table position shifting issue.

Yes, please attach such a screenshot.

Btw., Roman, you changed summary to have "DOCX", but in keywords and Blocks we talk about DOC binary. How do you know it's DOCX?
