Please, could you check if issue 66550 is a duplicate of this one ?
Comment 4 pagalmes.lists 2007-04-20 11:37:41 UTC
BTW, the blue square does not look the same in PWP and Impress. Should another
issue be created for it?
Comment 5 cno 2007-04-22 21:26:07 UTC
When I click on the button in design mode, and choose interaction, there is no
action set.
If that action ís present in Powerpoint (can't chek here) it is a missing part
of the filter.

Yes on Powerpoint it works. To test it you can even download the Powerpoint viewer.

See further example attached files under Issue 80312.
Comment 13 cno 2007-08-06 07:56:22 UTC
IMO serious enough, with growing interest for easy change to Impress, to set
keyword to ms_interoperability
Comment 14 Mathias_Bauer 2007-12-04 16:19:25 UTC
according to release status meeting -> target 3.x
Comment 15 robbk 2009-02-19 09:53:05 UTC
Any progress on this issue? Problem still occurs in version 3.0. Thanks.
Comment 16 sven.jacobi 2009-02-19 15:06:04 UTC
"Any progress on this issue?" To this question I should normally answer "No, any
help is welcome", but after having a look to this problem, it was not difficult
to fix it.

The fix takes place in cws[impress168] in sd/source/filter/pptin.cxx rev. 268292.
Comment 17 cno 2009-02-19 15:11:35 UTC
thanks robbk for asking and sj for fixing ;-)
Comment 18 robbk 2009-02-19 15:13:17 UTC
I guess I should have asked two years ago :-)
Comment 19 sven.jacobi 2009-04-03 13:57:35 UTC
sj->wg: this issue is ready to be verified in cws[impress168]
Comment 20 wolframgarten 2009-04-21 12:39:37 UTC
Verified in CWS.
Comment 21 wolframgarten 2009-05-20 08:42:22 UTC
Tested in m48. Closed.
Comment 22 robbk 2010-03-24 16:13:51 UTC
Umm, is this really fixed? Before, there was a hand cursor indicating a link
when I hovered over the blue box. Now there's not even a hand cursor, and when I
click I get the message saying click to end the presentation. OOo 3.2 Novell
Edition, Build 2010-02-25, WinXP.
Comment 23 gtsstl 2011-03-01 16:25:23 UTC
This problem is not fixed as far as I can tell.  My class is making PPTX using Microsoft Office 2008 on a Mac.  When I open their files in OpenOffice, links on text and arrows to other slides all disappear.  Also, OpenOffice overrides the setting not to advance slides when clicking the background.  I like the export to Flash option in OpenOffice but it's not useful if all the links in our presentations are disregarded.

@gtsstl: please submit a new issue. Thanks.
