Using OO 4.1.2
Something new to me. I used to do a lot in MS PowerPoint but it got complicated and my interest waned. Now the spirit has hit again and I was surprised that there was no PowerPoint in OO. I was sure it was there when OO came out.
I read that OO Impress is much like MS PowerPoint.
2 Questions
Does Impress work like MS PowerPoint in that it lets you make a slide show with a background of music, and text over slide?
I can't find how to download Impress?

One should download the entire OpenOffice suite; it is possible to install only some components, but the space saved is negligible.

Impress is in many respects functionally similar to PowerPoint, but it is not a clone of it, so there will be a learning curve. As you already appear to have OpenOffice installed (21 forum postings), it should already be on your computer.
