Coming from a latex background I would like to make presentation in Impress/Libreoffice.

I wonder if there is a feature to structure the presentation as it is possible in Latex/Beamer package.

I could not find a description in the manual. While structuring text is possible in writer, is this feature missing Impress?

EDIT: I would like to structure the presentation into sections.

  • Section 1: Outline
  • Section 2: Motivation
  • Section 3: Approach
  • Section 4: Implementation
  • Section 5: Tests
  • Section 6: Results
  • Section 7: Perspective.

These sections should show on the header or foot section of the slide. They could also appear on a side bar in each slide.

I will not have a lot of equations in this talk so I was hoping to use Impress instead of beamer.

Beamer example

When writing an article in Writer, I can also set a Heading 1, Heading 2, Chapter 1, Chapter 2` and so on. I wonder why this is missing in impress.

Could you describe exactly what you need fir those od us not familiar with Beamer? – terdon Jan 26 '13 at 15:10
If you mean styles, Impress has them under the format menu (or press F11) – parkydr Jan 26 '13 at 17:24

You cannot do this with Impress. Impress lacks this feature!
