Powerpoint file, which when opened in impress, demonstrates corrupted motion path animation
Description of problem:
Opening a pptx file in libreoffice impress, containing a motion path animation created in powerpoint 2010 (and other versions), results in an animated motion path with a corrupted start point.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always. This has been a long term issue.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new pptx file
2. Add an object (e.g. rectangle)
3. Create a motion path animation
4. Save file
5. Open in impress
In the case of the attached example, the motion path has the correct end point, but the starting point is not within the object, but rather far off the screen.
The same motion path that was created in powerpoint should appear in impress.
The external bug from freedesktop.org seems (#33852) seems to report a similar issue with ppt files, though the way in which the path is corrupted appears to be slightly different.
