Description bmacalister 2010-01-26 21:44:57 UTC
I create a presentation in Impress.  It is slides and instructor notes
(View>Notes Page).  It is saved as a PPT (Power Point) file.  When opened in
Power Point and "Notes Page" viewing is picked, the notes appear but the slides
are all blank.  When viewed in "Normal" slide mode in Power Point, the slides
appear but every word is underlined as a misspelled word.  Ironically, Impress
can open the PPT file it created and the Notes Page views are correct with both
notes and slides.  Effectively it means I can no longer source my slides in
Impress because others with Power Point can not use my slides.

A file with the problem is available at about 5meg for attachment on request.

Please email the file to me ( Which version of OOo are you
using OOO300m1 is quite outdated...

Which version of OOo are you using OOO300m1 is quite outdated..."  Indeed it is.
I couldn't translate the options on the pulldown list to what OO has in it's
"About" window.  I looked at it more closely and see that it is 300m15 build
9379 or 3.0.1.

The file "Electricity2_Jamb2010_broken_notes.ppt" is attached.  What you see is
how Impress saved it.  The Power Point that cannot read it correctly is 2003
build 11.5529.5606.

"01OObug.gif" attached is what the slide looks like.  Note the red underlines
that indicate misspellings.  However PP offers no replacements.  "02OObug.gif"
is the notes page and, as you can see, the slide image is missing.  In OO all
that looks correct.

I'm running Windows XP Pro in with current patches installed.

Ok, reproducible in current version (OOO320_m11). Thanks for your mail. Reassigned.

I've suffered a somewhat similar problem where my presentation initially had some notes added to eat slide and then that the last slide, wouldn't allow me to enter notes. And then, on the next day, I reopened that presentation and lo and behold the notes were all screwed up on the (inconsistent) on all the other pages as well. I had to make do with my presentation, however, insufficient.I'm using OO version 4.1.5, Microsoft Windows 10 home addition.
