Description iastatecyclone 2009-01-27 14:00:49 UTC
I'm using Impress to edit PowerPoint files originally created and saved in
Microsoft PowerPoint 2003.  I can open the .ppt file fine with Impress and can
see the text on the Outline tab/view fine.  Once I save the file in Impress as
.ppt and then reopen the file with PowerPoint or with Impress there isn't any
text in the Outline view.  This happens regardless of whether I edited the
original .ppt file or not.  I will attach an examples.
If I save the original .ppt file as an ODF presentation (.odp) and then reopen,
the text is still visible in the Outline view.
Another thing to note (is this expected behavior):
   1.  I save the .ppt using "File -> Save", I receive the "some formatting may
be lost" dialog box.
   2.  Without editing the file at this point, when I close the file I'm
prompted with the following message "The document 'doc_name.ppt' has been
modified.  Do you want to save your changes?"

To duplicate:
1.  open slide Forever.ppt with Impress
2.  select File -> Save As and rename to "Forever - test" with file type of
Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP (.ppt)
3.  when prompted that some formatting may be lost, select the "Keep Current
Format" button
4.  close the document
5.  reopen the file saved in step 2
6.  select Outline view and note that the text is missing.
