[Solved] A .ppt file which I saved with AOO fails to open

Postby daniel4kh » Fri Oct 19, 2018 11:10 am

OpenOffice 4.1.5 user with windows 7 32bits. Using impress and saved in ".ppt" format.
Now one of them fails right after open, though I could open it with MS power point viewer.
All cache clear didn't work with this trouble.
I am using Khmer characters with it, could this be the cause?

Is there any error message?

You could try Selecting All in Powerpoint viewer, then pasting it into a new OO Impress file. Save it under another name, so you do not destroy your original.

I am using it in Japanese setting, but contents are English and Khmer.
"OpenOffice 4.1.5 stopped operating" in Japanese appears in the middle of "PowerPoint import."
Do these help?

Upload the file showing the problem so that it can be analysed.

Use the Upload attachment tab below where you type (128 kB max) or use a file share site, Dropbox or Google Drive for a larger file.
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

Thank you for your assistance, for compatibility purpose I have been trying to use .ppt format.
This time I have fixed the problem using MS PowerPoint by opening the file and saving in an another name.
And then I've found the minor problem with the table; the unnecessary cell spacing is added.
I want to find out how Khmer characters affect OpenOffice stability later.
But I will use .odp format for a while.

The contents are not appropriate to go outside, so I cannot attach this file.

In any way the problem is solved for now, thank you.
And please let me know if I should change this thread status "closed."
