[Solved] Alternative to Modern Impress Templates for 4.1.5

Postby AshleyVincent » Wed Mar 21, 2018 4:45 pm

Hi! I recently installed Apache OpenOffice 4.1.5 on my iMac (macOS High Sierra 10.13.1). I’m fairly familiar with OpenOffice Writer, and now trying to figure out Impress for a presentation I’m putting together.

I’ve tried to install what appears to be one of the most popular extensions (Modern Impress Templates) from the OpenOffice website, but I cannot get it to work. On the download page it does actually say, “This extension was not updated recently. It might not work with latest versions of OpenOffice” so I’m guessing this template is not compatible with OpenOffice 4.1.5

If someone can please suggest another .oxt extension/template that is comparable with OpenOffice 4.1.5, that will give me a good number of background alternatives to choose from (as the Modern Impress Template does) I would be very grateful. Thank you in advance!

Thanks for your assist Zizi. Not quite the single package .oxt file I was hoping for, but certainly some nice background templates to choose from :)

Do you happen to know how I can now install any/all of these single .otp files and save them so that I have them always in my Impress gallery to choose from?

Or if that's too much time on your part to explain, I'll be happy with a link to a YouTube tutorial that I could learn this from instead :)

Whatever the case, thanks again for trying to help :)

In your program folder there should be one like this (Linux): share/template/common/presnt (Windows uses backslashes, if you work on this OS)
You need administrator/root-sudo rights to copy your otp files into that. So you can share with each user.

My first note is:
Why you need to "install" them? The templates are "document-like" files. You can open them anywhere from.

Second note:
The AOO/LO has a Template management feature:
File - Templates...

Apologies for not replying to your question before. I would much prefer to have all the templates loaded into Impress so I can click through them in the Master Pages gallery while deciding which one/s look best for any particular page that I'm working on, instead of having to import each file separately, which would take a heck of a long time to upload and view one at a time being that there are 41 individual backgrounds to choose from.
