Description walkingonthemoon 2010-09-01 15:16:50 UTC
please excuse my bad english, as i am no native speaker.

i experience problems, saving user defined delay in user defined animation of
objects (all objects - no matter if it is text, or images)and speed,
problems saving user defined animation between slides and also
problems saving transparencies in images, used in slides.
release: OOO320m18, build 9502

description: all three problems occur everytime a programmed impress file is
saved, an then reopened. user defined delay times for animations are set back to
0 seconds, animation between slides ist set back to "dissolve", transparencies
of images are set back to 0% in the reopened file.
it does not matter, whether the file is saved as .sxi, .ppt, or .odf format.
problem occurs every time.
Comment 1 zjj303 2010-09-01 21:39:50 UTC
OS: windows XP SP3 v.5973
OOc Version: Dev_OOO330m6
Intel T2130, 2gb ram, intel 943 motherboard, 80gb hard disk
no other application was running 
network connected

I can reproduce the problem partially. 
My trying process is like this:

1.Open the OOc, click Presentation
2.Creat an empty presentaion
3.Add a new slide
4.Paste the pic to both slides.
5.Set a custom animation to the pic in first slide.
  Entrance:Fly In. Speed:fast. Timming:0.5 sec
6.Set transparency of the pic in second slideto 80%
7.Set the slide transition as split horizontal in
8.Save the file as .odp
9.Close thr 
10.Open the file

All the configuration remained the same except the speed drop box turned to be empty

Then, I changed the step 8. Saved the file as .sxi. The situation was the same.
Finally, I saved it as .ppt. The transparency of the second pic was reset to 0%.
I closed the OOc and reopened it , did the same test, the same problem happened.

Summery: If a file is saved to .ppt, the configuration of transparency is lost.

I think this issus will make the users feel unconvenient. If they want to use
some animations or pics, making slides more attractive and impressive, this
issue would force them to set the animation or pics everytime they reopen files.

I can not confirm this in 3.2.1: Done everything as your write, but time 0,5s 
stays in the box as it should be.
