How can I convert documents in Writer into a slide in Impress?

I’ve produced a number of pages in Writer and want to transfer them into slides for a presentation.
How do I do that?


Do you want to preserve the content layout?

If (!) the Writer pages’ layout is suitable (landscape) you could export into a pdf file, pdf file “print” into single images and then perform the images into an Impress Photo Album (menu Insert | Media | Photo Album).

Text is in landscape layout. Making the Write doc into a pdf for copy as an image sounds excellent. Great idea. Thank you!

Open Writer and Impress.

Mark as much text in Writer as you want on a slide in Impress.

Copy the text in Impress onto a blank slide. And so on.

Tried that. When I highlight text from Write, it often only captures the first line or else truncates it. It might leave off a portion of the sentence or even slice the line longitudinally. An additional problem. And it doesn’t seem to adjust the copy proportionately to fit the slide. Frustrating.

FYI – regardless of what “support” puts out THERE IS NO WAY TO IMPORT A WRITER FILE INTO AN IMPRESS PRESENTATION, EVEN IF THE WRITER FILE IS PRINTED AS A PFD. Don’t waste your time trying, you’ll be sorry.

What @Grantler posted works for me:
Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 50(Build:1)
CPU threads: 1; OS: Linux 5.14; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: es-MX (en_US.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

So, there is some ways. Maybe you must try to reset your user profile.
