I have zero knowledge of PDF, and need to make a list of recommendations to
users working with LibreOffice Impress so that their presentations will use
the same parameters (size, fonts, etc.) and be rendered into nice HTML.
I have a couple of newbie questions:
1. Wouldn't it be easier/better to merge and convert LibreOffice files
directly into HTML instead of going through PDF? If that's the case, what
tool would you recommend (Windows or Linux)?
I'm no Impress expert, but after reading your email, I took an Impress
presentation and exported it to HTML from within LO itself. I selected
"File", "Export..." I then selected "HTML" from the format drop-down
box. I gave it a file name ending in .html, and hit "Save." The program
then took me through a series of HTML design dialog boxes. I didn't
understand more than half of what I was reading, so for most of the
dialog boxes, .I selected the default settings. When I finished, I had a
very nice HTML that closely mimicked my original Impress file. Each
slide and image was saved as a separate file, so the resulting HTML
presentation consist of many different files; it is probably best to
save them in their own folder.
I also tried exporting it to an "XHTML" format, but at least for me, I
lost the slide presentation functionality. It just became one single
HTML page that one would scroll down.
While I did this on a Linux Mint machine, I have no reason to believe
that LO would work any differently in Windows.
2. If going through PDF doesn't matter, what tool + settings do you
recommend to a) convert the files into PDF (if LO isn't good enough) and
merge them all into a single PDF?
So far, I've used LibreOffice to export files as PDF, and PDFSam to merge
PDF files into one. I've never used GhostView (gv) to convert to PDF.
As you already know, LO can export directly to PDF, but I don't
understand your question about merging the PDF files into a single file.
When I save an Impress file as a PDF, it automatically saves it as a
single file. So, I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish here.
Either way, LO can export directly to either PDF or HTML.
