Description delphivip 2005-05-11 11:34:10 UTC
Import of ppt file seems to not import shape names. If you have a ppt presentation that was created in powerpoint, and a macro created the shape names, the shape names are lost when you open the presentation in impress oo2 (m100)

Can you attach a bugdoc, please? Thanks in advance.
Comment 2 delphivip 2005-05-11 11:43:23 UTC
Sorry, what is a bugdoc, and how do I create one? Thanks
Comment 3 wolframgarten 2005-05-11 11:57:23 UTC
Sorry for expressing me that shortly: a bugdoc is a document with which the bug is reproducible. In this case this would be the powerpoint document you are talking about. If this is not possible (maybe the doc has some internal content not ment for public) a stripped-down document that shows the same problem will do. You can attach it using the "Create a new attachment" function justs below the keywords box above. Thanks.

The attatched powerpoint also uses the tag property of powerpoint shapes to hold some additional text. We are struggling to find what would be the Impress equavalent?
Comment 6 wolframgarten 2005-05-11 12:20:51 UTC
Thanks for the doc. But I can only see text, no shapes. And where can I see the shape names in powerpoint? Thank you.
Comment 7 delphivip 2005-05-11 12:30:44 UTC
Yes, is the text not a text shape? But, it is the name object of the text shape. We don't think you can get to the name property of the shape object in power point unless you get to it via a vba macro, which is how we actually named these objects in powerpoint originally.

Reassigned to Sven. Do we import something like "name property" from ppt?
Comment 9 sven.jacobi 2005-07-28 13:54:47 UTC
sj->cl: We need to support the alien property sequence at our shapes first, when this has been done please submit this issue back to me.

slipped my attention. Removing keyword as we already have enough information. cl->sj: shapes have the alien attributes since a long time. Also we support shape names, shape title and shape description. Maybe this has already been implemented? Please have a look
