Hi all

I am tearing my hair out. LibeOffice has the Presenter Console announced and installed in 3.3.1 I try tu use it with a Impress presentation but I can not find anything that says Presenter Console anywhere in the program, Helpfiles or documentation.

I am using LibreOffice 3.3.1, Windoze XP SR3, on a Dell Vostro 1510 with an NVidia card

I have tried the following:
1. I set my displays to be extended to the second monitor. That works and I can move my mouse pointer right across so the projector screen. Then I open the LibreOffice presentation and I find the Slideshow > Slideshos settings. I dont find anything about a presenter console there by the way. I set the Presentation Display setting to all displays. (this seems to be the only setting that relates to the topic.) The I click ok and F5 to run the slideshow. The slide show starts on my main monitor (the laptop) no Presentation Console anywhere. The second display (the projector) is still as before.

2. In the Slide show > Slideshow settings I change to primary display. Then OK, f5 and I get the same result. (no presenter console anywhere) 3. In the Slide show > Slideshow settings I change to secondary display. Then OK F5 and I get the slide show to open on the second display (the projector) and I can see the impress program on my laptop. But still no presenter console anywhere. 4. when I set my display to be cloned then I do get the option under Slide show> Settings > Multiple displays grayed out.
5. The same as 4 when I switch to single display.
So I am still at a loss.
Any further advise would be appreciated.
