LibreOffice Impress Notes view

#1 Postby Jerry3904 » Mon Sep 05, 2011 4:39 pm

I am getting a presentation ready for a trip to Germany in a couple of weeks, and have noticed for the first time that the Notes page in Impress was not picking up the slide image--except for one slide! Since I want to be well prepared for Q&A in German, this page takes on importance for the first time, since usually I just ad lib everything but am feeling nervous about the state of my spoken German these days.

So I posted a question on the graveyard of the LO forum, and after a couple of days of silence headed back to Mr. Google to search the Internets again, drilling further down this time. Turns out this bug has been known for a long time, but never fixed. The workaround:

  • Click on the Notes tab to get Notes view of any slide
  • Click anywhere in the Slide pane (left panel)
  • Ctrl-A to select all slides
  • Click on the Layout menu in the Tasks (right) panel
  • Click on the single Notes layout template there
  • Now each slide will appear at the top of its Notes page

Irritating to have had to spend so much time figuring this out...
