Long time OpenOffice/NeoOffice user ... long time Impress user. Just ran into TWO issues today that were brand new to me: 1) Made a presentation ... and suddenly some of the images in it (not all), are somehow 'linked' instead of 'embedded'. IE, if I copy the presentation file to another computer, it complains of the files not existing. How did that happen, and how can I fix it? 2) Similarly, This was my first presentation with lots of embedded video. After embedding it all, I went to check the filesize, and it hadn't grown. I copied the file to another computer, and yup, the video doesn't exist, it was linking it in only instead of embedding it. Is there a way for me to embed it directly instead of linking it in?
3) As a followup to 2 ... if I can't, not, link it. Is there at least an easy way for me to change the file it's looking for? Right now, it's looking for the graphics from an 'odd' directory. If I have to leave them 'linked', then I might as well make sure that hte files all live in one directory, so that I might be able to gzip it or something to distribute them. But it seems that changing that would be a major understaking. Any easy way to tell it that "All Video are now in X directory" Or even just a way to right-click on a video and chose a new source, without having to delete, insert, resize process.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
