Description devindunseith 2010-06-17 07:12:19 UTC
When I open presentations that my colleague made on Office Powerpoint 2007, usually containing large images, Open Office Impress freezes within ~5 seconds every time. I have used an online converter to convert the .pptx file to .ppt and .odp, but it still freezes. I can create presentations and open/edit presentations made using Impress, but not those made in Office 2007. I have scoured the forums, but noone seems to have had this problem, and most advice for converting .pptx files (which I can not upload to google docs, my replacement for OOO when it freezes) is to open it with OOO Impress and save it. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) with all latest upgrades on an Acer Aspire 4810T laptop.

I replicated the bug twice when I opened two seperate power point presentations. One was made on Office 2007, and the other was made on Office 2010. These are the steps that I followed: 1. Open the program OpenOffice.org 3.4 2. Click on "Presentation" tab 3. Click on "Open existing presentation" 4. Click on "Open..." tab which opened my downloads file 5. Clicked on file named "PowerPointViewer" and opened it, which opened "ASII Filter" window. 6. Settings were: Character Set: Western Europe (Windows 1252/WinLat 1) Default Fonts: Times New Roman Language: English(USA) Paragraph Break: CR & LF Clicked "OK" tab Within 5 seconds the Windows spinning circle cursor appeared and the program did nothing. A message appeared that said "Program not responding". I closed the program and followed the same steps two more times, getting the same result. I then tried again the same way except I changed the "Character Set" setting to "Western Europe(ASCII US)" and then to "Western Europe(DOS/OS2-437/US)". The program froze again on both settings. I tried these settings because the powerpoint presentations were made in the USA. The problem must not be limited to Windows 2007, but includes Windows 2010 as well. I am running Windows 7 on an ASUS laptop.

Johanna Forsberg 09/06/14 I tried to produce this bug and I can't. I can open a presentation that is made in Office 2007 and one that was made on Office 2010. I am running on windows 7. I am not on a laptop though, I am on a pc. I tried different builds (old - (2010) and new (2013) and I can't get the bug to happen and I do not know what builds the previous person tried.
