      Description

      Really want this feature to work, in several versions of PowerPoint and OO Impress. I've got 1.6 Beta 5 2006050500 and 1.5.3 and unfortunately don't have PP2002 to test. My importPPT.php say it was created 12 April.

      If somebody would send me a small powerpoint and an imported zip file that worked, I would be happy to test it on my Moodles (2 localhosts each with 1.5.3 and 1.6) and RedHat web based system running 1.5.3 (I think).

      Almost works with MS PowerPoiint 2003 SP2. It keeps repeating last slide for as many branch tables as there are slides. Have two different PowerPoints with different results. A)One of my operational presentations, it tried to create the correct branch page title from slide. In this presentation, it successfully imported the content as text (page number was in a funny place). B)In my most recent test powerpoint with 5 simple slides, it could not load content of last slide. Only major difference is that A had MasterSlide background and B was blank.

      It did not work with MS PowerPoint 2000. Said could not get data.

      I have not tried it with OO Impress 1.x or 2.x recently.

      This is could be a killer app.
