Unfortunately, Impress is horribly buggy and not very intuitive sometimes.
The program could use a complete overhaul, and the ODF (.odp) presentation
format could use a serious update in order for LibO presentations to compare
to MS Powerpoint or Keynote presentations. Some of your errors I haven't
experienced but I have experienced other problems of my own.
About the the hierarchical changes: Never mind! :O By the way, a very
In theory, if you change text in the master slide (ex: you change the font
in Level 2 outline text) it should also change the "Outline 2" text style.
Additionally, changing an outline style (ex: the font change to Level 2)
will change all the higher level outline styles (3-9 will also have a font
change) since the styles are linked.
Thank you! I initially saw the Guides menu, but after a moment I can't
find it again... I thought I was crazy... :P
You can create guidelines and create a grid for the document. View>Grid

Never mind too. Thanks!
Fields are extremely limited in Impress. Only the default fields will be
accessible for the general user. :-(
This means there are a lot of cool features we could add to Impress
Templates that won't be accessible.
Yeah, I was thinking about all those possibilities using fields! :/
The Summary Slide function is disabled in every case I try (also the
Expand Slide function). Selecting slides, salving the presentation and
or put footnotes in the slides have no influence on it... the menu still
You can't... sort of... The Insert>Summary Slide function creates a slide
with a content box filled with the titles of each slide. It does not,
however, update itself automatically. Additionally, it only adds Titles
from the selected slide onward (so if you are on slide 7 or 9 slides and
click create summary slide it will only create a summary that includes the
titles of slides 7, 8 and 9).
Essentially this function is useless for templates and inaccessible to most
users since the command follows no common sense.
I'm thankful, but for now I can't reproduce these bugs correctly (!?).
They are a bit random, but I'll try.
Weird... Could you send the file to me directly. I will look at it and see
if I can figure out why its doing this.
Many time ago when I started to use OpenOffice.Org I passed by many
annoying bugs like these. So I searched in the web for any solution or
even create a new bug report. But it seems that developers didn't
anything to solve them along the years, so I found many old bug reports
with the exactly same bugs. I hope now the things will get changed! :)
Agreed! There are a lot of annoying bugs! I will try and make a list as I
make templates but to be honest there are so many I currently find the task
of recording the error, and creating a bug report for each very scary.
