Insert Menu

Insert -> Special Character... ( Alt + Shift + C )

Insert a special character. This might be a character you don't have a key for on your keyboard layout, for instance � on a US Keyboard.

Insert -> Variable

Here you can insert a variable that is filled in with a value that may be updated as you update the document.

Insert -> Link...

Insert a hyperlink to a file, a website, or an email address. This enables these locations to be linked to directly from within active presentations, with resources being handled as appropriately by other applications installed on your system.

Insert -> Comment...

Enter a small note that does not display during the real presentation. You might use this to comment on a colleague's text, or to leave a note for yourself about something to do later.

Insert -> Slide... ( F2 )

Add a new page to your presentation. A dialog will open allowing you to choose a template, and whether to insert the new page before or after the currently selected page.

Insert -> File...

Insert an already existing presentation. A standard KDE file open dialog will appear, allowing you to choose a KPresenter Document (.kpr) or a OASIS OpenDocument Presentation (.odp), which will be inserted after the last slide in your current presentation.

Insert -> Text ( F10 )

Add a new text object. Click and drag to create a frame where you wish the text to appear.

Insert -> Chart

Insert a chart. Click and drag to define the size of the chart. Some default data will be displayed. Double click to edit the data and choose the type of chart to display, using the embedded KChart editor.

Insert -> Table ( F5 )

Insert a table. Click and drag to define the size of the table.

A KSpread open dialog will display. You may import a spreadsheet that you have saved in one of many formats, including plain text files. You may also choose to create a new and empty table.

Double clicking on the table will allow you to edit the contents.

Insert -> Object

An object is an embeddable file, in one of many formats.

A common use of this action is to insert scaleable clipart in vector format.

Insert -> Picture... ( Shift + F5 )

Insert a raster image. These are not as easily scaleable as vector images or “clipart”. KPresenter currently understands many formats, including .tiff, .jpg, .png and many more.

Insert -> Line

You can insert several types of lines. Line drawing is described further in the drawing tools section.

Insert -> Shape

You can insert several prepared shapes, in vector format. These are editable just like lines you have drawn yourself. Using the drawing tools is described in detail in the drawing tools section.

Insert -> Scan Image...

Scan an image with a scanner. This requires you have a scanner installed. It opens the Acquire Image dialog to allow the use of the scanner.
