creating effective multimedia presentations. Your presentations can be
enhanced with 2D and 3D clip art, special effects and transition
styles, animations, and high-impact drawing tools.

preparing your materials. And you can save even more time by
downloading templates from the LibreOffice template repository.
While you're building your
presentation, you can look at your slides in different viewing modes,
to fit the task you're currently doing: Normal (for general editing),
Outline (for organizing and outlining your text content), Notes (for
viewing and editing the notes attached to a slide), Handout (for
producing paper-based material), and Slide Sorter (for a thumbnail
sheet view that lets you quickly locate and order your slides).
When the time comes to screen and
present your work, you have a powerful Slide Show mode that gives you
total command over how your slides are displayed and sequenced, so that
you can focus on addressing your audience (which slides get shown;
manual or timed slide transition; pointer visible or invisible;
navigator visible/invisible; ...).

easy-to-use drawing and diagramming tools to add style and
sophistication to your presentation.
You can arrange your
drawing tools around your screen, ready for single-click access, and
take advantage of the "Styles and Formatting" box to put all your
graphics styles just one click away.

into Microsoft products. Alternatively, you can use the built-in
exporter to create Flash (.swf) versions of your presentations.
