Orignal working file (for bug reporting)

LO Impress perfectly import both PPT and PPTX files (PPT is attached). LO Impress saves both files in ODP (no mistakes again). However, when exported again in PPT (but not in PPTX) some shapes are lost.

Steps to reproduce:

1. open the attached file
2. save in in ODP
3. open it again (nothing is lost)
4. save it in PPT 
5. open in Power Point and Impress - some drawings are lost (custom drawings, arrows, etc...)

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1

Slide 1:
The circle objects are lost.

Slide 2:
The circle objects are lost and the curly arrows are changed to straight arrows.

Slide 3:
The arrows are lost.

These issues do not happen if you save it as pptx.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.5 or 5.1.2 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

- Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 

3. Leave a comment with your results. 

4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
