I downloaded OO portable app 3.0.1 to a flash drive, a drive that had an Impress file on it.
I took the drive to the library (which doesn't have OO) to work on it but it took forever to load. It took so long that I thought it wasn't working (it's a 65MB file). After alt-ctl-del a few times (software wasn't even "responding"), I finally got it on the screen but every task was delayed. If I tried clicking on "Insert," "Format," or "Tools" it would take 5 - 10 seconds. And forget about scrolling down through the slides - it would go, stop and freeze everything.
The library's computers are fast. They never freeze and never lock up. And the Word docs on the drive worked just fine. So what's going on?
Also, I have text on some of the slides and I used the "wipe" effect, where the text rolls out left to right. But instead, entire sentences just appeared. I should point out that one slide - that has bullet points - never did "wipe" right on my computer. For some reason it was very robotic. The first half of a word would show and then the second half, for every word in the entire sentence (yes, I checked the software a million times - 'word by word' was not selected - nothing I tried did any good). Also on this slide, I underlined text at the top (the heading) in white. But it's appearing as light blue (at the library).
Another slide has text "wiping" and "flying in" which both always worked on my computer. But it didn't work at the library -- they just appeard (but the timing works).
Why isn't the the "wipe" working?
Note: I created the file on 2.0 (I think) and contiued to work on it after I updated the sotfware to 2.4
