I created a ppt file (also tried saving as pptx) in Impress but it displayed wrongly in MS Office 2010 when I shared it with a colleague.

I attatch screenshots from WPS Office, which shows the same problem I saw with MS Office (I don't have a copy of MS Office).

BTW it's kind of annoying I can't upload these files to this website...

I figured out this is related to Autofit Text option for the textbox, which is on by default.

I tried in vain to disable it globally. The following steps do not work for me to change the "master".


Every time I create a new file in Impress, the Autofit Text is ticked. So now the problem is how to disable Autofit Text everywhere, all the time.

To enlarge upon the "not work" part, I mean I can't save the changes to the Master document (I can't see any option for doing that).

Also, even after I turn off the Autofit Text option in the master, when I right click in the Slide Pane and choose New Slide then this slide will have Autofit Text enabled.
