[Solved] Hyperlinks between slides in Impress doesn't work

Postby WildCoast » Thu Jun 21, 2018 1:08 pm

Hi,
I just discovered Open Office and imported one of my Microsoft Power Point's (that have hyperlinks between slides in the same presentation, as well as links to external url's) into Impress. I saved the presentation as a PDF and am impressed with the quality - however the hyperlinks between the slides doesn't work anymore (they were set on text boxes in Power Point) although the hyperlinks to the external url's work perfectly. Is there a way to fix this without linking the hyperlinks to the actual words in the text boxes?

I would also love to know if there is a way to save the imported Power Point directly as HTML5 from Impress (with working hyperlinks).

Much appreciated!

Links in an imported format (such as .ppt) may not work. You should Save the document as type .odp and recreate the links.

OpenOffice is not a clone of Microsoft Office, so there may often be problems with file transfer.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.04.2 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

Many thanks Mr Dandy and RoryOF.
I am currently recreating the links. I also discovered Zamzar by chance - but never used online converters. Don't laugh - but can't files end up in the wrong hands if one upload into cyber space? I am sure they are reputable - but not doing everything off line is just very new to me...
