For some reason whenever I try to resize some text area it takes about a second or two to respond. I didn't experience this when I had 9.10 and, I think, the same version of OO. I have no idea on how to go about figuring out how to fix this problem. Any pointers?

Could you possibly mention the version of Ubuntu you're using, as well as the version of OO Impress you're using (probly in Help > About... in the program)? – Thomas Ward Mar 16 '11 at 7:19

Maybe you should try Libreoffice (, its basically the same, but with many tweaks and bug fixes and the development goes on quite fast.
