How to import .odg into Impress?

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 InsertObjectOLE Object, select “Create from file” and click on “Search”, find .odg file, open it and it will be imported.

Thanks! I have no clue what an OLE is (and tbh, I don’t want to know), but it works :slight_smile:

Is it include this OLE object inside odt or not?
