Ok .. I have the same problem .. exactly
I have read your thread and I have added 10 slide and when I press F5 .. the slides are played randomly ..
But I have a question .. how I can save the file into a presenter way .. for PowerPoint for example when I wanted to edit the file I would go to the .ppt/.pptx file and to play it I would save the file into .ppt/.pptx version .. but for impress I have tried to save the file to .odp and .odg but when I open the file .. the show dose not start instant .. and requires me to press F5 ...
I wonder .. there's a way to export a impress presentation with a macro in it ... to a .ppsx or to a .ppsm (power point file with a macro .. ) ?
