The attached presentation--which I received from a friend--seems to run better--without any setup--with PowerPoint than with Presentation. Any idea why?

Gordon Broussard

Because it makes sense? PowerPoint has its native format that it uses. Unless licensed by MS, no one else uses PowerPoint's native format. That means, PowerPoint will run the slide presentation better than other programs. They have only limited ability to read PP's files. Impress uses ODF (open document format) as its native format. Similarly, MS has only developed limited ability to read this format. Consequently, a slide show created using Impress and the ODF native format runs better on Impress than it would on PowerPoint.
