Hello, I am following the instructions of the Getting Started With LibreOffice 4.2 guide and on page 189 it says:

To apply a different display time to each slide in your presentation:

To apply a different display time to each slide in your presentation:

1) Go to Slide Show > Rehearse Timings on the Menu bar and the slide show starts.

2) When you are ready to advance to the next slide, mouse click on the display background or press the right arrow or spacebar on your keyboard.

3) Impress will memorize the timings for each slide and advance to next the slide automatically using the timings when you run the slide show.

I follow these instructions but when play the presentation again it does not follow the pattern of times selected during Rehearse Timing. It follows what I have selected in the Slide Transition of the side bar.

That happened to me on: LO on Ubuntu 14.04 and LO on Windows XP

Please, is there anything else I have to do or configure?

Configuring the options of LibreOffice, in Options-Load/Save-General I selected:

Always create backup copy

The manual says (GSG Version 4.2, page 50)

Always create backup copy Saves the previous version of a document as a backup copy whenever you save a document. Every time LibreOffice creates a backup copy, the previous backup copy is replaced. The backup copy gets the extension BAK. Authors whose work may be very lengthy should always consider using this option.

but the .BAK files are not in the same folder as the document. Are them gereated and stored somewhere else?

I am using LibreOffice on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

2015-05-17 19:27:35 +0200 asked a question The section "Load user-specific settings with the document" in the manual seems to be all the way around

Hello, I am reading the manual Getting Started 4.2. and in page 49 it says:

" Load user-specific settings with the document A LibreOffice document contains certain settings that are read from the user’s system. When you save a document, these settings are saved with it. Select this option so that when a document loads, it ignores the stored settings in favor of the settings on your computer"

shouldn't it be all the way around? that is: Select this option so that when a document loads, it ignores the settings on your computer in favor of the stored settings "

I have tried to create an example of this with the zoom of a document and showing or hiding the grid or changing the language of the documents but I have not seen any difference with this option in Options-Load/Save-General marked or unmarked.

I am using LO V: on Windows XP and LO V: on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Please could help me clarify this subject with an example?
