I made a small block diagram with Draw that I want to put into my presentation. Seems simple right? Well... not with LibreOffice...
Thing I tried:
Select drawing, ctrl+c. Then go to Impress and hit ctrl+v. This screws up the location and (font) size of text and connectors.
In Impress go to Insert > Picture > From file... Can't select .odg.
In Impress go to Insert > File. Then I can select the .odg. Then I get the following question: "The format of the new pages will be adopted. Do you want to adopt the objects, too?" I have no clue what it meant by that, but either picking "yes" or "no" gives my a drawing with moved connectors and oversized text. It just looks like crap.
What I'm doing now as a last resort: In Draw export it as .jpg. Then import it in Impress, crop the image (lots of white space) and resize/reposition. I have to repeat this for every little modification.
Can someone please tell me an easier method?

Save your .odg file in Draw, then open Impress and go to Insert -> Object -> OLE Object, select "Create from file" and click on "Search", find .odg file, open it and it will be imported.
