I don't have screen resolutions in that dialog. What version do you have? – aioobe Oct 25 '14 at 21:38

For Version LibreOffice - Select menu option "Slide" - Select "page/slides properties.." - Select folder "Page" and "Paper format" options.

Annoying but true. Changed in LibreOffice > 5.0. Go to:

-> slide -> Page Slide Properties

that's where the unity search feature comes in handy - press Alt and start typing what you're looking for – amc Apr 21 at 15:45

yes it works in any program with menus – amc Apr 25 at 20:15

For version LibreOffice

Format -> Page

must be put:

formar: user

width: 16 cm

high: 9 cm

impress takes the aspect ratio 16:9!
