Using interactions

From Apache OpenOffice Wiki

Interactions are things that happen when you click on an object in a slide. They are typically used with buttons or images, but text objects can also have interactions. Possible interactions include: go to previous slide, go to next slide, go to first slide, go to last slide, go to page or object (that is, a specific slide or named object in a slide), go to document, play sound, or run a macro.

To apply an interaction to an object (or change an interaction applied to an object), right-click on the object and choose Interaction from the pop-up menu. The Interaction dialog (shown below) appears. Select an interaction from the Action at mouse click drop-down list.

With some interactions, after you select one, the dialog changes to offer more choices. For example, the figure below shows the Interaction dialog after choosing Go to page or object.
