Bug Description

Binary package hint: libreoffice

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 11.04
Release: 11.04

2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-impress
libreoffice-impress:
  Installed: 1:3.3.3-1ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1:3.3.3-1ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.3.3-1ubuntu1 0

3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Impress via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget -c https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/783794/+attachment/2131821/+files/EDC%20Presentation%281%29.pptx -O info.pptx && loimpress -nologo info.pptx

is the black text on white background for slide 2 looks as it does in PowerPoint.

4) What happens instead is the black text is converted to white.

Example pptx file that doesn't render in impress correctly.

When you open a PPTX file in impress it doesn't preserve the text effects.

To reproduce open example.pptx . There is a black text with a shadow and a white outline in the center of the slide. However, impress renders the text white with no effects. It basically renders it useless.
