Description anjethenerd 2008-11-12 14:04:11 UTC
Superscripts and subscripts in text boxes in Presentation/Impress do not
maintain themselves when the presentation is saved as .ppt (which I have to do
for collaborative reasons).  

Superscript numbers saved in Impress open as normal but smaller text in MS
Powerpoint 2000.  MS Powerpoint-created superscripts open as superscripts in
Impress, but do not save correctly.  This appears to also apply to subscripts.  

Annoyingly, this doesn't appear to occur with all test documents I have made,
and I haven't determine the specific conditions that cause it yet, but it occurs
consistently with a presentation containing several imported and modified graphs
for Calc.

Works fine for me in MS Office 2003. Is it possible that you attach the file
where this appears? Thanks.

Looks like you requested an example just as I was preparing one for submission,
and it may not have registered.
Comment 4 wolframgarten 2008-11-14 21:48:56 UTC
In Powerpoint 2003 these numbers appear as superscript correctly. OOo shows them
as subscript. sj, can you have a look, please? Thanks.

Additionally, also PPT files with super scripts disappears when opened in simpress.
