    How do I automatically start an ODP presentation when I open the file?

    LibreOffice is able to launch a .PPS file automatically. To do the same with a .ODP file, you must use the ImpressRunner extension.

    • download the extension and install it, then restart LO ;
    • the extension has added a toolbar with 2 buttons: FR.FAQ Impress 104a.PNG
    • the button with the green arrow activates the autostart function;
    • the button with the red square deactivates the function ;

    Insert manually, or via the extension's toolbar, the keyword autostart in any of the personal properties (not necessarily the first): File ▸ Properties ▸ Custom Properties tab.

    • ImpressRunner detects the presence of the keyword in the user properties in order to activate automatic launching or not.
    • Once the file is written and closed, the slide will run automatically from the next time the slideshow is opened.
