Saving an Impress file as a PowerPoint file

  1. Choose File > Save As from the menu bar.
  2. Select the location where you want the PowerPoint file saved and type a name for the file.
  3. Under File type, choose Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP (.ppt).
  4. Click Save. The message shown below will appear. Click Yes to confirm that you want to save the file in Microsoft PowerPoint format. You can select the checkbox to not show the message again.
Warning message
Warning message when saving in Microsoft PowerPoint format.
Image:documentation_note.png Recommendation: always save your work in Impress OpenDocument format (.odp) before saving in Microsoft format. Keep the Impress file as your working copy. If you need to change the presentation, change it in the Impress version and then save it again as PowerPoint. You are much less likely to have problems than if you open a file previously saved in PowerPoint format, edit it, and save it again.
