Description cforbesaus 2010-05-03 11:32:55 UTC
Attached you will find a simple Impress file which connects text boxes with
connectors. When exported to ppt the connectors are quite wrong: they no longer
connect the correct boxes! See also the attached ppt file. There seem to be some
similar issues in the database, but they are not the same.

My results for "Trial.ppt": MS PPt viewer shows connectors wrong in "Trial.ppt",
Connectors are no longer connected to glue points.
"Ooo 3.1.1 WIN XP DE[OOO310m19 (Build 9420)]" has the same problems, connectors
look as with MS PPt viewer.
Worst result with "Ooo-Dev 3.2.1 multilingual version English UI WIN XP:
[OOO320m16 (Build 9497)]".

Result for export from "Trial.odp" with "Ooo 3.1.1 WIN XP DE[OOO310m19 (Build
9420)]" to "Trial_311.ppt" does not look perfect with MS PPt viewer (corners
turn to wrong direction), but acceptable. Even 3.1.1. shows the "corners turn to
wrong direction" problem with "Trial_311.ppt"

Export from "Trial.odp" with "Ooo-Dev 3.2.1 multilingual version English UI WIN
XP: [OOO320m16 (Build 9497)]" to "Trial_320.ppt" shows the same problems like
 In MS PPt viewer:
- glue points broken (regression from Issue 38501?)
 In OOo 3.2.0 additionally
- lines to thin (different open import problem problem)
- arrowheads missing (different open import problem problem)

Reproducible. Reassigned.

I have tried it with AOO350m1(Build:9611)  -  Rev. 1424563
Rev.1425220. The connectors have the correct shape now, but on the first slide the connection to the shapes is lost. The connector on the forth slide has no connection to the shape already in the source document. But if I correct this error, the export in .ppt has still lost the connection to the shapes.

"Latest Confirmation" has no item for 3.5.0, so I choose 3.4.1.
