Created attachment 81854 [details] Pptx file I was trying to open a pptx file with open office, the text are not aligned correctly and colors are missing. I have attached a sample copy of .pptx file and screen shot when I open with open office 4.0.1 version. Am I missing any plugins for correct macro etc?

Root cause: Microsoft has their "own" interpretation of fontsizes :( http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444840104577549202116809114.html ... quote " ..14-point Calibri produced by Microsoft Corp.'s Word software, but a dispute has arisen over whether the font renders the type at the full 14-point size.... ..Lucas de Groot, a type designer in Berlin who created Calibri, said by email that "the typical height of capital letters is around 70% of the type size, so all typefaces are 'smaller' than 14 pt when set at 14 pt. " In other words, every letter in a pptx file written in the uncorrect Calibri-font size looks "too big" in the correct AOO substitution font size.
