Bug ID: 117658
           Summary: equations appear twice in pptx import
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Impress

When importing PPTX files into LibreOffice, I see equations appearing
twice. One equation appears to be a bitmap, perhaps created by PowerPoint, and
the other equation appears to be a poor attempt at mimicking that equation
using the LO Formula Editor.

I suspect that this approach was implemented to reduce data loss when
transferring from one format to another. But I didn't see any but report about
this behaviour. With the attached images you can see it makes for a lot of

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open PPTX file containing equations
2. note duplicate formulae as per screenshot attached
3. file bug

Actual Results:  
As per libreoffce screenshot attached.

Expected Results:
As per powerpoint screenshot attached

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
In Writer, I believe that equations are left untouched by LibreOffice until the
user requests to edit them. If editing them, they are converted to a form that
can be edited. LO should preserve the Powerpoint appearance, and only create
the local rendering in the (reversible/undoable) case where the user seeks to
edit a particular equation.
