Description zhongqiyao 2006-11-24 04:42:06 UTC
Chinese (Traditional characters) version.

1. Open a Microsoft PowerPoint file, last saved from Microsoft PowerPoint
   2003 or from OpenOffice Impress 2.0.1.

2. Export it from OpenOffice Impress as Microsoft PowerPoint format.

3. Now the size is about three times as big as before.

4. You may try the reverse open-and-save process.

5. This may be related to 71849 (Excel file).

For 67361 (Word,
clicking into "Target milestone" above does not tell us when is
"OOo Later" and there is a misspelling in the page "isseus".

Since compatibility with Microsoft and its import/export
features are an attraction of OpenOffice, we expect this
problem to be fixed soon.
Similar to the complainer of 67361 (Word), and of 71849 (Excel), and
71915 (PowerPoint), I will be forced to go back to OpenOffice
2.0.1 (the previous official release in Chinese-Traditional-chars)
if it will not be fixed "soon".


Comment 5 zhongqiyao 2006-12-14 07:59:58 UTC
Sorry, what I said of 67361 should be 67371.
Comment 6 zhongqiyao 2006-12-14 08:03:53 UTC
The responder of 71849 (Excel) asks me to look at 67371 (Word)
for "Target settings", but I cannot find any target setting
in 67371 (Word).

Moreover, I think that the default settings should not
save super-big files.


Comment 7 zhongqiyao 2006-12-15 04:48:37 UTC
Does anyone know whether this has been fixed in version 2.1?
Since it has not been put into the "Resolved", I don't think so.

Comment 8 christian.guenther 2007-01-03 12:25:36 UTC
Set to new and change the target.
Comment 9 christian.guenther 2007-01-03 12:35:19 UTC
I tested it with an empty slide and the OOo file (PPT export) was nearly 8 times
bigger then the PPT file.
Please have a look.

Bug 67371 (for Writer) is destined for OpenOffice 2.3.
So if this is a duplicate and will be dealed with
together, you may close this issue.
