[Solved] Impress not working correctly

Postby rodin the contrarian » Sat May 30, 2020 2:17 pm

Impress on my PC has stopped functioning correctly. Text files open fine, but Impress does not bring up the usual rectangle to work on, and the mouse tools don't carry into the page. I can't open previous .odp work. Also moving the Impress side window creates ghost images that simply build up on screen. Is this a hardware problem in my computer? I did get a flashing Cubase image once recently, though a reboot cleared that.

TIA

Graham

Can you upload or share one of the problematic files?



Try the LibreOffice. At least a portable version of it.

Please, edit the initial post in the topic: add the word [Solved] at the beginning of the subject line - if your problem has been solved.

The files were not the problem. 'Presentation' just refused to load correctly. It looked ok apart from the drawing tools did not do anything, and previous work was blank. Changing profile has cleared the problem completely
