In xubuntu, started creating a presentation in outline view; text did show in slides. After saving & closing as a pptx, then re-opening, text still showed in slides, but although outline view showed slides existed, no text was displayed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start new presentation in outline view.
2. Save & close presentation as pptx.
3. Reopen presentation, change to outline view.
Slides on left hand sidebar showed previous text; outline view recognised the number of slides, but showed no text.
Show text in outline view, to allow further changes.

Thanks for filing, trevdymond.
I confirm the problem in a daily build from 2015-11-17.
Cheers - Cor
Already the case in 3.6.6.
So this probably never has worked?
1 I've recently upgraded to LibreOffice 220.127.116.11, so this applies in future.
2 I opened a pptx file, created in PowerPoint, in Impress, & when I switched to Outline view, the slide text appeared in the view. However, if I saved the file in Impress & reopened it, no text showed in the Outline view.
This suggests to me that PowerPoint, in a pptx file, saves a slide version of the text AND an Outline version of the text, and Impress is either actively removing the Outline version, or doesn't recognise and save that text buffer.
