With the latest versions of LibreOffice you have two different options for inserting slides from one presentation into another one, both tested and working on every platform.
A. You can open two different LibreOffice presentations at the same time, and switch between them using the Window menu. When you have two presentations open you can copy and paste slides between them from the Slide Sorter view: 1. Select multiple slides with the mouse while keeping the Ctrl key pressed 2. Copying them by selecting Edit > Copy or by hitting Crtr+C 3. Switch to the other presentation from Window > Presentation Name 4. Past the slides after the selected slide from Edit > Paste or by hitting Ctrl+V B. You can insert multiple slides from another presentation into the open presentation from Slide > Insert Slide from File... 1. Search and open the source presentation 2. Select any number of slides or the entire presentation 3. Click OK and wait for the process to complete I have just copied/pasted according to option A and inserted according to option B 60 slides of an 82 slide presentation into another 142 slide presentation without any issue. Although I don't see the need of reverting to an old LibreOffice version to do the same thing in a different way, you can find old LibreOffice releases here: https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/ On 12/04/2018 21:29, anne-ology wrote: > yes, & thank you for expressing what obviously I was unable to so do. > > There's also a problem with their copy & paste suggestion, since > that surely requires having more than one copy of LO open at one time, > which seems impossible since when I click on LO again, the opened one > appears rather than a new version. > > And when I've gone to the LO archives to attempt to download the > previous versions, it merely sends me back to the download page to download > the newest version. > > PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW to download a previous version, if the latest > versions will no longer have this option available. -- Italo Vignoli - Marketing & PR email italo.vign...@documentfoundation.org mobile/signal +39.348.5653829 - skype italovignoli hangout/jabber italo.vign...@gmail.com The Document Foundation, Kurfürstendamm 188, 10707 Berlin, DE Gemeinnützige rechtsfähige Stiftung des bürgerlichen Rechts Legal details: http://www.documentfoundation.org/imprint GPG Key ID - 0xAAB8D5C0 DB75 1534 3FD0 EA5F 56B5 FDA6 DE82 934C AAB8 D5C0 -- To unsubscribe e-mail to: users+unsubscr...@global.libreoffice.org Problems? https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: https://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
