The Linux Page

OpenOffice Presenter

Already used OpenOffice? This is a free office suite just like Microsoft Office (or MS Office). It does not include absolutely everything, but it has most certainly a lot more than you need!

Today I was creating a new presentation and I put a logo and a slogan at the bottom of my slide... I then thought, hey! Let's copy that on all pages. First I tried just to copy on the 2nd page. It did not work. I selected the image and then the text and did a Copy. The default Paste was not available. The Special Paste was and wanted to paste things in some rather strange formats... so I did not do it that way.

Instead, I tried again by selecting the image first, then the text and copying them one after the other. That worked fine.

Just in case, I'm still using 2.4. Hopefully 3.x is better!
