Creating Web Pages
Personally I would never use a word processor to create web pages as there are far better tools capable of producing web pages and I find that word processors have the habit of adding bloat to your HTML.
The interface within LibreOffice is a little bit clunky but as WYSIWYG HTML editors go it works quite well and looking at the source code the HTML generated isn't too bad.
Creating presentations is very easy. You can either use the wizard or you can create a presentation from scratch.
The image above was created by using the wizard. To demonstrate some of the features of Impress I will create a presentation from scratch.
The image to the left shows a simple title page with centred text.
You can choose from a large number of layouts. For example you can have a title with images on the left and text to the right, or text on top and an image at the bottom.
You can change the slide design and pick from a range of templates.
Instantly a dull white slide can be transformed to be something that looks a little more professional.
The image to the right is just the default background from Xubuntu 12.10 used as a background for the slide.
Ironically I don't like it as a desktop background but as a slide background it looks good.
You can add images, videos, sounds, charts and text to your presentations.
Everything on the slide is customisable.
Presentations can be saved in ODP or PPT format. As there is a portable version of Impress available it is possible to store a copy with the presentation on a USB drive which means you do not have to worry whether Powerpoint will destroy the layout or transition effects.
I have used LibreOffice Impress to produce presentations for work purposes and for my son's school presentations. I think because I can carry LibreOffice around on a USB drive I feel more comfortable creating presentations within LibreOffice. I know how the presentations will look wherever I have to present them because I'm using the software it was created with.
Creating forms for entering data is very easy. You can simply right click on the table and choose the form wizard.
If the table you have chosen has relationships to other tables you can add subforms within the main form.
Reports are as easy to create as forms. Simply right click on a table and click the report wizard.
