Hi,

I'm very keen to use Impress as my default presentation software, but when I tried to import a simple Powerpoint as a test today I found that it has somehow reduced the image quality when I run the presentation in "slide show" mode.

Here is what I have found:

- I am using version 1.9.95 running on Windows XP Pro SP2.

- The original powerpoint was saved as a Powerpoint 2003 ppt

- The images are placed one to a slide

- The images have been inserted and then scaled down to fit the page by clicking on the image and then moving the resize points (in each corner)

- If I right-click on the image and choose "original size" the image gets big (obviously) but then it does display properly in "slide show" mode.

I'm assuming the problem is in the code that scales the image to fit on the page. It seems to be doing a very poor job, leaving the image distorted and "chunky".

This is true of all images.

Any ideas?

Cheers

D.

Any ideas anyone? This problem is preventing me from using Impress as my primary presentation software, and therefore from being an advocate for OO.

Cheers

If I start a new Impress file I get the same garbled images. Especially screen dumps are useless. My screen resolution is 1400x1150 which may be the cause as dialog boxes appears correctly. If I use original size it is also displayed correct, but of course this is not useable.

Does Impress rendering assume you are entering graphics at a certian resolution?

in version 1.9.95 there were no animation from PPT, in 1.9.100 it is, thats o'k, but new problem occure: when presenting bulleted (animated) list only the last text content is visible in the slide show mode Sad

Anyway, grapics and text antialiasing is inferior to PPT. It improwes significantly when exported from OOO to PPT. Sad

I'm an enthusiast of OOO, but wish it performs better. =D +D
