    I am trying to create a PowerPoint presentation using Libre Office Impress, however after I activate the individual text animations and save them they keep getting messed up after I open the file again. I tried saving it using the Open Document format, but the margins were screwed up.

    I need to know how to make sure that animation settings won’t be tampered with after I save the document and reopen it. How best to do that?

    btw, I’m hoping to compile enough information on using Open Source applications to launch a ‘How To’ manual on how to use them whether on Mac O/S X or Windows. (at a cost)
