Description slacka 2013-07-26 11:09:20 UTC
This bug was tested Apache OpenOffice v4.0 running in windows 7 and XP. It appears that AOO loses formatting when importing MS .pptx files. I have attached an example.

Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Download pptx file from:!411&app=PowerPoint&authkey=!AN5Q_kKPvn2eWUQ
2. Open Contoso-Presentation.pptx document in Impress
2. Open Contoso-Presentation.pptx document in PowerPoint 2007/Office 365
3. Compare the documents. 

Note The "Sales", "CALCULATING PROFIT", and "Highest Revenue" are sized incorrectly resulting in them being displayed incorrectly.

MS .pptx size and position import error pg2

This is only page 2, with all other slide and pictures removed to reduce the file size.

So after further investigation, it appears that the PPTX importer doesn't understand the OOXML stacked text tag.
