I'm writing some macros that I intend to run on the Linux version of OpenOffice. I'm writing them on the Windows version, though.
I just tested them on a few PowerPoint files on Linux and the output is different than that of Windows.
On Windows, the PowerPoints save to PDF with no formatting issues. On Linux, however, the PowerPoint saves to PDF with formatting issues. Text in certain areas flows off screen. I've checked and both are using the same font and font size. It just seems to be some sort of rendering issue.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is this something I can fix by applying a certain "do not overflow" setting, or anything? Or is this something I'm just going to have to live with?
