OpenOffice.org: The many views of Impress

Filed under
OOo

Presentation software isn't complicated compared to a word processor or spreadsheet. It doesn't need to be. Maybe that's why OpenOffice.org's Impress offers a variety of views of your work. These views not only allow you to focus on a particular aspect of your presentation, such as the contents or your speaker notes, but also accommodate both verbally and visually oriented users, as well as a variety of needs, such as handouts. If you spend some time exploring Impress, you can easily find the views that are most suitable to your preferences and needs.

From what I've observed, most Impress users stick with the default Normal view, and don't even bother to customize that. However, even within the Normal view, you have options that you may not have noticed. Go into other views, and the options increase. For most of them, all you need to do is to select a view from the tabs in the middle of the screen, or select an option from the top of the View menu. And now, there is even a special view for when you are actually presenting a slide show, thanks to a recently-released extension.
