“Open” like in “if you don’t like it, change it!”

I’ve started working on a presentation recently and rely on OpenOffice.org Impress as the presentation tool. Unfortunately, OO.o Impress is a rather strange tool to use.

Having content is fine, but the eye wants to be pleased aswell so I started tinkering with background designs. To sum it up: Dante Regis is absolutely right. Spot on. Bull’s eye. You could go as far as saying his post is the base that made me go “aha, so that’s how it works!”.  I recommend you read it, try for yourself and think if it really has to be that hard to design a layout… (hint: It doesn’t have to.)

Maybe I should seriously take a look at KOffice

  1. Hi Tsukasa!

    I’m happy to know that I’m not alone on my disappointment with OO.org. That’s really a terrible way to make things work. Thanks for the link, by the way!
