    View OpenOffice presentations on Windows...


    Is there any way I can convert OpenOffice presentations to PowerPoint ones? Or is there any presentation software I can use to create my presentations which work on Windows? Or probably a viewer that can play OpenOffice presentations on Windows because I need to give a presentation at school on Monday but I don't have Windows any more and I'm not sure if they have OpenOffice back there or even if the allow installation of software.

    I need help FAST!

    Open the document, got to file -> save as and then save the file but make sure the file format is the Windows powerpoint one (select this on the dropdown menu on the bottom of the save window)

    I use OpenOffice at home and Windows Powerepoint at school. The are fairly interchangeable. At least as interchangeable as the various MS versions of Powerpoint are with each other.

    It works most of the time. There are more canned powerpoint themes available for powerpoint than OO.

    You might also try KDE's KPresenter.

    Yes, but I don't think they'll allow software installation.

    I think there used to be an option to make a presentation disk, and it would put the presentation and a slide viewer all fit on a single floppy, barring having a really large presentation. You could also save the files to a usb drive or email them to yourself then download them at school.
