How do I create my own presentation template?

Follow these steps:

  • Create the template slide using Impress
  • When the slide is complete, from the pulldown menus, select: File-Templates-Save
  • If you want to make your own folder for storing your personal templates (suggested), click on the "Organizer" button
  • In the dialog that appears, select: Commands-New
  • A new folder will be created and will appear on the right side of the dialog, named "Untitled"
  • Give the folder a new name and press the "Return" key to enter the name, e.g. My_templates
  • Click Close.
  • In the "Document Templates" dialog, on the right side, you will see a "Categories" list. Make sure that your new template folder is selected.
  • In the "New Template" field, enter a name for your template
  • Click on OK

Whenever you create a new presentation, your template will be available for selection.
