Hi,

Please clarify, do you use OpenOffice or LibreOffice?
What version?
Which OS?

If you have just started how is it possible that you know it worked fine before the update? There wasn't an update of OpenOffice for about a year.

I'm building about 35 slides with scaled images. Total file size is under 1 KB. So I'm sitting here building other slides, and right in front of my eyes, photos disappear from the slide sorter and the slide. WTF? I've rebuilt, translated to pdf then reopened the original file to update....again....8 missing photos out of maybe 40 photos. What's going on??

Using Openoffice Impress.

Hey, wait a minute, when we ask for particulars, you're supposed to provide them. saying OpenOffice Impress is not nearly good enough - there's LibreOffice and OpenOffice.org and Apache OpenOffice will hit the download servers soon. We want you to tell which one you have, and what version (Help - About OpenOffice/About LibreOffice if you don't know the version number). See my signature for an example.
Are your files saved as Impress files or in the Powerpoint format?
If your files are about 1 KB in size, you must have lost a lot of file data - did you suffer power loss, a crash when you were saving files? Please note that just installing a new version of OOo or LiO won't affect your files.

Using Openoffice Impress.


What operating system?
What version of OOo or LO? Be very specifit.
Did you create the file?
In what program was the file created?

What update are you talking about?

I created the file in OpenOffice.org Impress 3.1.0 000310m11 Build 9399
I'm using an Acer netbook CPU Z520 @1.33GHz running MS Windows Prof Version 2002 Service Pack 3
The exporting and posting pdfs has gone through Google Chrome.

What else do you need?

Perhaps an explanation of

I don't quite understand what these steps are supposed to do.

Also, can you elaborate on your comment about

What was updated?

Are you saving in Impress or Powerpoint format?

You're confusing two different posts. I didn't say I did other presentations, although I have. And no, I haven't had this problem before.

I told you twice I used Impress. No change to MS at any point. The only issue is disappearing jpegs from my file as I'm working on it, or reopen the saved file only to find 5 pictures gone.

This is an intermittent problem (the pictures disappearing from the file.) I'm trying to problem solve if it's happened to anyone before. Or if there is a file size limit in Impress (seems unlikely based on the performance of the file.)

You're right I am confusing two different posts. Your responses flowed too smoothly into the fadember problem. Sorry.
