Description burnus 2005-10-20 18:39:21 UTC
This is OpenOffice_org-1.9.125-5 of SUSE Linux 10.0.

The PowerPoint file contains graphics, which seem to be in the EMF or WMF
format. (In PP 2002, if choose "Edit graphic", it tells me: "This is an imported
graphic and no group. Should it be converted into a Microsoft Office drawing
object? [yes/no]". If I choose yes, I can edit the text.)

The file shows a plot consisting of the tics ("630", "632" etc.), the legend and
a textbox. In OpenOffice, the background of both the textbox and the legend is
black. One sees the red and blue line of the legend and a "c" sticks out. Thus
I'd assume that the text is correctly drawn, but that first the boxes are filled
with a black background.

If I ungroup the graphic elements in OOo, then I can select a black-filled
rectangle (and delete it) and I can delete a black-borded rectangle. After that,
 the file looks quite ok. (Minor other bugs: The text position is shifted to the
bottom/right with regards to the rectangles & to the PP2002 results; and if I
ungroup, the graphic jumps to the top right of the page instead of keeping the
initial position.)

If I save the file in PP 2002 (both "normal" format and PP 97 format), the file
is correctly imported in OOo.

I'm not sure whether I can attach that file as I have received it in private
mail and as I haven't created that file myself (stripping down does not work,
see above). But I can send this file (275K) by mail if someone wants to investigate.

If you don't want to attach it you can send if via mail to me, wg. Otherwise we
have no chance to see the problem. Thanks in advance.

Reopen - no request received. As wg seemed to be interested in the bug, I send
him the PPT file.

Thanks for sending the file, I'll keep it confidential. The problem is reproducible.

Is this a duplicate of #25794 resp. #79116?
