I have a master presentation containing just 4 slides...

One of those slides shall contain a lot of images (my product icons) and clicking on one of those images should open the linked presentation explaining this product. When finishing the sub presentation I would like to jump back to the master presentation.

Ive tried to use "Interaction / Go to Document", but unfortunately this interaction opens the document in edit mode and not in presentation mode.

Thanks for your tips
Hajo

You can start the presentation (with "run program" or "run macro") with a command like the following (you will need to adapt it to your OS):
openoffice.org2.2 -impress -show /path/to/your/presentation.odp
you will need to close it with Alt+F4, though.

On my linux system this does not work. Ether with run program nor run macro.
/usr/bin/soffice -impress -show /temp/myPres.odp
If I try the same command from a command line it works well...

So any other ideas are really welcome

On a macro, you must issue:
Shell("openoffice.org2.2 -impress -show /full/path/to/the/presentation")
I have no idea why it not work with "run program"...

Thanks, that works for opening the linked presentation, but it does not close when pressng ALT-F4.
Only the presentation modus closes but the presentation is still open in edit mode and Im not back in my initial presentation.
You need to close first the demo and than the edit mode.
That does not look as professional as - Im sorry - PowerPoint does.
Arrow I think there is room for improvement in OO...
