Hi Kevin,

I had attempted a long time ago a similar project for OOo before I became
overwhelmed by other commitments and had to drop the topic.  One minor issue
I met with was finding templates that satisfied the design community while
satisfying user expectations.  What I mean is, users (according to the
design community) often make horrible presentations; however, users expect
certain features to be available in their design templates.

<Very slightly off-topic> I think we could use a LibreOffice Impress
template that could be very helpful for the community to make LibO
presentations.  Features could include using the paper tab (the top right of
the logo) as bullets at the primary level, the LibO logo perhaps in the top
left and then of course some nice and simple design background.  (These are
just suggestions you can do whatever you like, of course).  Its not
explicitly related to your topic but it could be really helpful for branding
and the like if you have the time.

It's a great idea! I think some steps to start this should be:
1. Choose some main topics to cover with the templates, for all types of
presentation: school, enterprise, marketing...
2. Look for the real presentations in each topics. There are many sites of
slide sharing, when you can find the most rated presentations. I gives the
feeling of what is needed to achieve in each template.
3. Work hard to create the best templates in a office suite ever! :D

Count with me,

I ever start with the Ubuntu one... :P

As I am sure most of you have noticed by now, the default set of templates
from OOo Impress is terrible.  I was wondering if I were to make a set (lets
say 10 - 20) of really high quality templates for Impress, if we could get
them included by default?
