Impress template expanded to fit widescreen

Postby trauts14 » Sun Apr 02, 2017 10:46 pm

I have a template I like and want to use it on a 32" TV to display "daily specials." the current template does not occupy the entire screen. How can I configure the template to cover the entire screen of the TV? Any help is appreciated.

You have to change the page size to something compatible with the screen you're using. Unfortunately, OO Impress does not include any preset page sizes that exactly match a typical widescreen tv. You have to choose the "custom" options and enter your own height and width.

Note that the exact height and width don't matter, only the ratio between the two. Impress will always scale the output to fit the screen as closely as possible.

Thank you, would the custom page size be found under "format?"

Sorry, yes: Format > Page > Page ...
