I am a big fan of Ubuntu. I have recently switched from Latex to
LibreOffice Impress for PPT because it seems that with Impress you can quickly create slides. I am using
LibreOffice 3.4.4 OOO340m1 (Build:402) on
Ubuntu 11.04. I am saving them as .ppt format. However, facing the following problems. It is really frustrating and forcing me to use Windows/MAC just for making slides.
Font is changing from Arial to TimesNewRoman specifically for Tables when I reopen an Impress presentation.
Tables are stretched if I reopen an Impress presentation. Impress is not allowing me to compress them (the stretched tables) and I have needed to make a fresh table.
Several other modifications are reverting back when I reopen an Impress presentation. For example, the "transparency" change to the borders (e.g., for rectangular shape).
Arbitrarily Impress is crashing.
It would be great if someone help me to resolve these issues.
