OpenOffice.org got me an early Christmas present this year. They released version 2.1.0 and included the feature I wanted most, presentation mode in Impress. Some call it multi monitor support for Impress, either way it is most practical for giving a presentation. It allows you to use your laptop and show on the external monitor, or projector, the slides, while you can see on your screen the slides plus your own notes and more. Thank You Santa, eh OpenOffice.org team!

Before I forget, OpenOffice.org 2.1.0 also includes the following:

  • Improved HTML export in OpenOffice.org Calc
  • Enhanced Microsoft Access® support for OpenOffice.org Base
  • Even more supported languages
  • Automatic notification of available updates
  • More extensions

Do you need some drawing templates for OpenOffice.org Draw or Impress? I found this small but growing collection by Mark Lautman. Mark has created collections for Computer and Network Symbols, Home Entertainment, Office Layout, Furniture and more.

Mark’s Drawings are easy to use. Just download the documents he offers and click on a shape, copy, paste and use it as you need. These come in handy if you are illustrating your Impress presentation.

Way to go Mark.
