In Impress, I made a very basic presentation. I entered a title, changed the background to black and the text automatically changed from black to white. Then I saved it as a ppt file to use it on a windows pc with MS office. In powerpoint the magic happened the text disappeared, well rather the text color changed back to black. How can one eliminate this from happening?

Thanks for pointing out that I referred to a wrong naming convention. I get confused cause I normally have LO open and then click on new file. Someone beat me to deleting the file :).

It looks like some defect in LibreOffice's PPT export filter, that doesn't export Automatic color properly. No idea if that's a limitation of the PPT format itself, or just a bug in the filter; that needs to be filed to bug tracker, and investigated there.

Elaborating on Mike's comment: a "workaround" may be to save in the default ".odp" format. MS Office supports the use of ODF files, and that may work better (in this area?) than LO's support for OOXML.
