       Thank you for responding; maybe you've figured this out for me.

       I'll be attempting this soon,

To: "" <>


In my curiosity to understand what Italo has been saying, I installed LO
6.0.3 to my Puppy Linux partition, and I now understand it.

All the LO developers have done is move the function from the "Insert >
File..." menu selection to the "Slide > Insert Slides from File..." menu

Once you click on the new menu option from the Slide menu, you'll be
prompted to select an .odp file, just as we did when we did it through
"Insert > File...". Once you select the file, you'll have the option to
select as many or as few of the slides from the file as you want.

The functionality has not changed. The only change is that it has been
moved from "Insert > File..." to "Slides > Insert Slides from File..."

Like you, I question why such a change was needed, but you can still
obtain the same results with the same number of mouse clicks.

possible - more than 1 version of LO

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

With the latest versions of LibreOffice you have two different options
for inserting slides from one presentation into another one, both tested
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 slide
presentation without any issue.

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

        yes, & thank you for expressing what obviously I was unable to so
        There's also a problem with their copy & paste suggestion, since
that surely requires having more than one copy of LO open at one time,
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 the
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.
