Color gradients and borders

Impress does not support some of the formatting features that PowerPoint does. For example it does not support three-color gradients, double and triple borders, or round-dotted borders.

When importing PowerPoint slides, Impress changes three-color gradients to two-color, double or triple borders to single and round-dotted borders to square dots.

To improve the results of the import, make any necessary adjustments in PowerPoint before importing files into Impress. Change three-color gradient fills to two-color. Change double or triple border lines to a single border line with suitable width. The round-dotted border lines that are mapped to rectangle-border lines, during import, will closely resemble the original line style in PowerPoint so that manual editing should not be necessary.
