Distorted impress pages when saved as pptx [closed]

I got some new Lenovo laptops with W7 and LibreOffice 3.5 or 3.6. When users saves a presentation as pptx (for compatibility reasons) the pages in the active impression session looks fine. Terminating the session and opening the file again results in textboxes that doesnt linebreaks so that you got a single line that reaches way out the textbox frame. Headlines even looses formatting!? I got older computers with with older Libreoffice that works fine. I doubt that they have changed the extension converter between versions so I guess that its the new versions that interpret the pptx files different from those older versions. Any one got a clue if there is a fix around the corner? (Saving as ppt (works fine) is not as fun anymore ;-))

Hi @Pelle,

This is an interesting bug, especially as you mention that the rendering looks correct in older builds of LO but not in 3.5 or 3.6. It's possible that some changes were made in the code that handles pptx files between 3.4 and 3.5.

Couple of things:

  • Could you please let us know which builds render the documents correctly and which ones do not?
  • Could you please grab a 4.0 beta build and let us know if the bug is still present there?

Thanks!

(dev note: this might be a good candidate for bibisect, if it's still an issue in master)

Just a comment on your HW and OS. I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 which came orginally with W7. I removed W7 and installed XP/SP3. The machine is very fast and stable. Maybe this is an option for you.

I, too, am still using XP. However, keep in mind that next year (2014) support for XP will end, which means no more security updates. At that point, continuing to use XP will be like playing Russian Roulette.
