Choosing your Template You can choose from a number of different template sources. Also keep in mind that Microsoft PointPoint templates should be compatible with LibreOffice Impress. The most obvious places to find templates are: Built-in to LibreOffice LibreOffice Template Website Microsoft PowerPoint Templates Website Internet
Customize your template In order to use your template, you will want to change and possibly even remove some of the default slides that it comes with. Some templates come with charts and tables that might be completely useless for your particular presentation. If that is the case, simply remove or delete the invalid content or slides from the template.
Creating New Slides To Create a new slide either click 'Insert' 'New Slide' Or Right-click the slide within the 'Slides Pane' on the left that you would like to appear before the new slide and click 'New Slide'
Manipulating Slide Layouts Your template will come with a default layout for each new slide that you create. If you do not like the default layout that is created for each new slide then you can change it by using the 'Tasks Pane' located to the right of the slide. Use the various predefined layouts to choose a layout that works best for the current slide that you are working on.
Adding Content to your Slides Once you are happy with your Template and Slide Layout, you can begin to add content to your slides.
Adding Pictures You can add pictures that you've downloaded from the Internet or pictures you have taken with a digital camera to a slide either by clicking the Picture icon on an unused area of a slide: Or you can click 'Insert' 'Picture' 'From File' From there you must browse to the picture file that you are trying to add to the slide.
