"Powerpoint? Impress has always worked fine for me at work. Haven't had a powerpoint presentation that I can't view yet in the couple of years running OOo.

Which functions, specifically, of PowerPoint do you miss that aren't available in OOo?"

Hm, I was cursing Impress just today while trying to save some printing paper...

I would like an outline view that doesn't suck. It should do as Powerpoint does and shrink all the text to reasonable standard sizes, as opposed to just leaving everything in varying degrees of "huge." Barring that, they could fix the crash bug that seems to result from highlighting a set of bullets and trying to change the font size.

I'm not sure whether Powerpoint has this, but a way to print outlines by the page rather than by the slide would also be nice. Either that or some dotted "page lines" in the outline view to show where page separations are. Or a print preview function. I always end up having to guess where the page separations are when printing in outline format.

On a related note, Calc can't seem to make an XY scatter plot with two different data sets for X and Y, rendering it useless to high school students everywhere...
