Hi :)
There are on-line places that can test the integrity of certain file-types but i don't know where 
to find one for Ppt.  

Lets hope the authors can send you the presentation in Odp!  I find it enormously difficult trying 
to get people to understand where they can find 
File - "Save As .. "
It seems to be so difficult for MS users to find something that 'technical' that i even took some 
screen-shots to try to help.  Even then its impossible for many people to figure it out.

Hmmm, that makes me wonder if they sent a PptX, the newer MS format.  They sometimes have less 
trouble finding "Save As ... " when it's to save as an older MS file-type.  The older Ppt format 
should be much easier for more people to open, even other MSO users.  

Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] where is that configuration file again?

Thanks.  That was what I was looking for.
Renaming the profile didn't help though.  I think I found a couple of Powerpoint files that LO 
can't handle.  It is either a first for me, or the files are corrupt.  I contacted the source to 
see if something can be done.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] where is that configuration file again?

I am having problems with importing a powerpoint file, causing LO to hang and crash, and wanted 
to try renaming the configuration file.  However, I can no longer find it.  Previous versions 
had it in my home directory, but it is no longer there.  Can someone point me to that help on 
finding the configuration file for LO 3.5.4?
