Graphics in Impress are handled much the same as graphics in Draw. For more information, see Chapter 7 (Getting Started with Draw), the Draw Guide, or Chapters 4, 5, and 6 in the Impress Guide.
Spreadsheet embedded in Impress include most of the functionality of spreadsheets in Calc and are therefore capable of performing extremely complex calculations and data analysis. However, in most cases people limit the use of spreadsheets in Impress to creating complex tables or presenting data in a tabular format. If you need to analyze your data or apply formulas, these operations are best performed in a Calc spreadsheet and the results displayed in an embedded Impress spreadsheet.
To add a spreadsheet to a slide, select the corresponding layout in the list of predefined layouts in the Tasks pane. This inserts a placeholder for a spreadsheet in the center of a slide. To insert data and modify the formatting of the spreadsheet, it is necessary to activate it and enter the edit mode. To do so, double-click inside the frame with the green handles.
Alternatively, select Insert > Spreadsheet from the main menu bar. This opens a small spreadsheet in the middle of the slide. When a spreadsheet is inserted using this method, it is already in edit mode. It is also possible to insert a spreadsheet as an OLE object.
To add a chart to a slide, select the corresponding layout in the list of predefined layouts in the task pane or use the Insert Chart feature.
Impress offers the capability of inserting in a slide various other types of objects such as music or video clips, Writer documents, Math formulas, generic OLE objects and so on. A typical presentation may contain movie clips, sound clips, OLE objects and formulas; other objects are less frequently used since they do not appear during a slide show.
For details on using spreadsheets, charts, and other objects in Impress, refer to Chapter 7 of the Impress Guide.
