I intend to show a custom show depending on the discussion in my (main) presentation.

Imagine following sequence:

  • In my presentation I am showing slide N,

  • Because and only because of the discussion I want to show 2 slides additionally and then return to my slide N. (I grouped these 2 slides in a custom show and call it CustShow.)

  • Now I want to click on text or button to open the CustShow.

  • After the last slide of the CustShow I want to show again slide N of the (main) presentation.

I keep the slides for my custom shows at the end of my main presentation in a section I call "LinkedSlides"

In Impress I looked into "interaction" and "hyperlink" but could not find a way to show CustShow and return to my slide N from where I wanted to branch.

Let me please also explain what I did in In MS PowerPoint:before I switched over to LO

  • created a custom show

  • created a text box or button at the slide from where I wanted to start the custom show

  • hyperlinked text box (or button) with the custom show and set a flag to return to the starting slide in the main presentation.

I appreciate a lot helping comments.

Don't worry @ROSt52, I'm pretty sure they're too busy to spend any time hunting you down... :-)

Hi @ROSt52,

Did you ever figure this show-within-a-presentation out?
