Hi Ricardo,

Good point!  I will make sure to add that to the wiki page.

Thanks! But a minor addition - maybe helpful as well.

If you look at the "recent" LibreOffice presentation template [1], I've
referred to several fonts at once. If you add ";" as a list separator,
then Impress will try to use the first font name in the list. If it's
not available, then it will look for the second one, If it's
unavailable, then ...

One problem I can see on many templates is the use of proprietary
font, like arial, times new roman, thorndale, etc: none of those fonts
are installed on my Linux system, for instance.
I think that a LibO default template must use the fonts delivered with
LibO, otherwise there will be compatibility issues on different
platforms and that's not good.

Hi everyone,

I have updated the wiki page significantly.

I added a new section which I hope can be used to critique the existing
default templates many of which (from my attempts to review each one)
problems such as font choice (serif fonts should be frowned upon),
issues (content and title area's improperly aligned), inadequate
images (too bright or distracting) and bullet indentation (too large an
indentation makes second level numbered content, and higher numbered
content, space inefficient).  Please feel free to look over my work and
your own critiques of the existing default templates.

In other news, I added Paulo's "Green Theme" to the wiki with a link to
blog page.  It looks good Paulo I can't wait to see bullets.  If you need
help with setting up a master page for your template let me know and I
help.  If you send me your background image and bullet images along with
your desired fonts I can create the template for you.

Please let me know if there are things on the wiki page you want changed,
you can just change them yourself. :-)

Hi all,

Thanks for the feedback.  I have started a wiki page as recommended by
Bernhard at:

Hopefully, I can finish cleaning it up and filling it out later this
evening.  Once I get the page completed I will send an invitation to the
Docs group for collaboration.  Is there anyone else that I should

Please provide feedback or direction as Kevin_Items and I move
developing a few templates. Thanks!

If you didn't already (sorry if I don't remember every mail I read
the last week), would you mind to create a dedicated wiki page for the
presentation template work?

Something like

(Any better structure idea welcome)

I think it might be a good idea to collect the template categories and
some more specific information there, allowing others (from other
teams, if
interested) to join.

 It will be very useful and I hope to see it soon fill up with good
from all. :D I didn't see the Christoph's link with the user feedback
templates, but I think would be nice to include its information in this
too. :) Maybe later I can help on it.
