Description t35t0r 2005-06-01 21:41:20 UTC
1) Make two objects, and orient them in such a way that a curved connector will
become curved when you try to connect the two objects. 2) Create a curved
connector with connectors on both ends. 3) Attach the two objects with the
curved connector so that there are multiple "curves" or "kinks" in the line. 4)
Optionally take off one of the arrow heads so the line goes in one direction. 5)
Save the file in ODP presentation format. 6) Save the file in MS Office PPT
format. 7) Load ppt in office 2000, 2003, or older.

You will see that the curved connector in the PPT loses some of its "curves" or
"kinks".

This same error occurs if you save the presentation as SXI and then import it
into PPT.

Yes, we are having some problems with connector objects. In general the
import/export of connectors needs to be reworked completely. Therefore we
already have issue 13026.
