Well, having had your little spat I see we have got back to suggestions as to
what I might do about my problem.

Bear in mind I am new to this game. There is a suggestion of reporting a
"bug". I realise there is a link for that, but what is the best way? Should
I include a sample of a Ppt conversion (and vice versa) with examples of the
problems, or just list them.

Including simple sample files would certainly be useful. Also a description of the various steps, as well as software versions and system environment (that can affect the issue, like the fonts installed etc...)

Bugs that are attractive (i.e. are well-documented and look easy to verify without the need to have more interaction) tend to get more support than vague claims or complicated descriptions that require more work by bug triage people or developers.

Make sure that what you contribute will be public and cannot contain content that is copyrighted or illegal to share.

Incidentally, there has been some comment about the 'different fonts on
different machines'. I am using Times New Roman (plain and bold) and as far
as I know that is available on any Windows machine, so presumably that is
not causing the problem.

Even when the fonts appear to be installed on the system, software bugs in the filters might be causing such issues. I don't expect them to, but bugs tend to be unexpected...
