PORTABLE COMPUTER Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-2TQ (Core i3-380M, 2.53
GHz, 4096 MB RAM)
GERMAN Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64 (OS is up to date)
GERMAN LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 installed from LibreOffice-Box CD
to make it easier for me, i only write in small letters, sorry for
i have a cd with content which is "interactive". this cd is
concerning a special event and includes several files, for example
*.pdf, *.doc and also *.ppt.
the cd works with a flash-based overview (like a menu), where u can go
to the categories on the cd.
in this flash-based surface u can klick on something (like a
hyperlink) and then it opens a file on the cd.
all the *.doc files can be opened by WRITER without any problems, also
*.pdf opens correct with ADOBE.
but there a two *.ppt files on the cd. IMPRESS can handle the second
*.ppt file, BUT NOT THE FIRST ONE.
if you click on the "link" to the first *.ppt in the flash surface,
LIBREOFFICE starts, and immediatly a window opens called "ASCII FILTER
When LibreOffice shows the ASCII filter, it cannot detect the type of
clicking OK with the settings given, LIBREOFFICE starts, it loads the
document (saying "Dokument wird importiert") and then, the program
after maybe 2 minutes the freeze is over, the *.ppt file is opened
with 38721 (!) sites and shows only unrecognizable signs.
Do you remember the very first signs? They indicate the type of the file.
the are a lot of possibilities to change something in the "ASCII
FILTER OPTIONEN" window, i tried several settings but no one works.
when browsing the file directly in the folders of the cd without the
flash surface, the same thing as already described, happens.
Do you try to start the file with double-click or do you use the file
menu when LibreOffice is already running? Please try it from the menu
and choose a filter explicitly. As PowerPoint 2003 can read it, try one
of the old PowerPoint formats.
i tried it on my (very) old DESKTOP COMPUTER with MICROSOFT OFFICE
POWERPOINT 2003, the file opens in a normal way. no problems.
file size of the *.ppt is 9,36 MB by the way. it contains some
i put a screenshot in the e-mail with the "ASCII FILTER OPTIONEN"
can anyone help me to solve this problem?
Can you copy the file from the CD and provide it for download?
There exist already a LibrOffice 4.0 release candidate. Can you please
try to open the file with that version?
