[Solved] No content visible in slideshow

Postby hurdygurdy » Tue Sep 04, 2018 9:25 pm

Hello, newbie to OO and this forum here. I have a slideshow that was originally a .ppt but has been saved as an .odp and edited within OpenOffice. Everything is working nicely but when I attempt to view the slideshow, all I can see is a blank slide with the chosen background style, originally chosen in Powerpoint. I can navigate with arrows but nothing else shows. After searching this forum I have tried unchecking hardware acceleration under graphics output but this is not checked AND greyed out (could that be part of the issue?). I would have liked to just work around with Powerpoint viewer, as recommended here, but it was retired April 2018. I created a new .odp from within OO to create the sample, and pasted a slide from the original into it. Same problem . File attached.

A very quick and not very satisfactory reply: if you pull the text "New Slide created in this document" on slide 2 to one side, so that it is half on half off the slide and do a slide show, you will see that the half of that text on the slide is hiding behind the inner white rectangle, that bounded by the fine black line. I have fiddled around but cannot find any way to select that white rectangle, let alone delete it.

I think you should change your master background, initially to a plain background, and leave the content alone. By the way, in your notes "it's" in that context does not use an apostrophe.

 Edit: Later: any attempt to change the master page used causes my OpenOffice Impress to crash.

Thank you! While dragging the text over to the side did not change my view in slideshow, changing the background to the default solved the issue! Highly appreciated.
