Hi @illiteratefool,

It's unclear to me if .POT or .POTX Power Point Template files are supported in LibreOffice. Here's some related chatter from the mailing lists:

  • http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/msg21176.html

I didn't see a clear message one way or the other there (although it sounds like there's at least some support for these templates).

Here are some bugs:

  • fdo#53481 - FILESAVE Powerpoint template dropped when saving in odp format - NEEDINFO
  • fdo#56654 - Large Powerpoint templates don't come up correctly. - UNCONFIRMED

Again, it still isn't clear to me to what extent these template files are supported in LO. My best advice to you is "Try it and see!"

Regarding the particular blueprnt.pot file, I suggest that you try to open it up using the latest release of LO. If the latest release doesn't open blueprnt.pot or other PowerPoint template files, please file a bug and provide a list of steps that can reproduce your problem. The QA team will be happy to help you track down this issue!

Please post a link to any bugs you file in a comment below using the format "fdo#123456".

Thanks!
