In an Impress session (start a new one and copy from initial attempts).
1. Set your slide Layout to blank.
2. Point to the Slide and open its Context menu

Thanks. I had a hard time finding the Context menu. For others who might read this thread in the future, I will document here how I found it: Rt-click (Ctrl-click on my Mac) in the slide [not in the slide thumbnail on the left] -> "Format slide...". This has page width and height options.

3. Select the Page Properties dialog
4. Set the Paper format Width and Height as needed -- the Format field will
change to "User"
5. Set orientation and margins as preferred.

When saving the ODF document the size will be retained. Also when exporting
to PDF.

Can do similar from Draw, or Writer depending on how you'd like to layout
your poster.

Draw is painfully slow for me on my MacBook Pro. Virtually everything else runs shockingly fast, especially compared the computer I replaced with the MacBook. I'm running LO under Mac OS X 10.11.6. I rarely use Draw, in part because it's been painfully slow for me in the past, if my memory is correct.

      Thanks again,
      Spencer Graves
