So, what I tried to explain is that the feature has not changed, it has just been moved from one 
menu to another menu, and that there is an alternative to that feature.

      Curiously wondering why it's easier to open - if that's even
possible - more than 1 version of LO
      then going through all these steps ... when previously all could
be done within 1 opened LO with a mere click from the Menu line ... ...

      Reminds me of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] [Copying slides from one presentation

With the latest versions of LibreOffice you have two different options
for inserting slides from one presentation into another one, both
and working on every platform.

A. You can open two different LibreOffice presentations at the same
time, and switch between them using the Window menu.

When you have two presentations open you can copy and paste slides
between them from the Slide Sorter view:

1. Select multiple slides with the mouse while keeping the Ctrl key
2. Copying them by selecting Edit > Copy or by hitting Crtr+C
3. Switch to the other presentation from Window > Presentation Name
4. Past the slides after the selected slide from Edit > Paste or by
hitting Ctrl+V

B. You can insert multiple slides from another presentation into the
open presentation from Slide > Insert Slide from File...

1. Search and open the source presentation
2. Select any number of slides or the entire presentation
3. Click OK and wait for the process to complete

I have just copied/pasted according to option A and inserted according
to option B 60 slides of an 82 slide presentation into another 142
presentation without any issue.

Although I don't see the need of reverting to an old LibreOffice
to do the same thing in a different way, you can find old LibreOffice
releases here:

       There's also a problem with their copy & paste suggestion,
that surely requires having more than one copy of LO open at one
which seems impossible since when I click on LO again, the opened one
appears rather than a new version.

       And when I've gone to the LO archives to attempt to download
previous versions, it merely sends me back to the download page to
the newest version.

         PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW to download a previous version, if the
versions will no longer have this option available.
