I have several MS Office Powerpoints that I would like to view in LibreOffice Impress. The slides import without any problems, but the speaker notes appear to be missing. How do I recover/access the notes and view them in Impress?

I had 3.5.3 but I just installed and have the same problem. – Robert Jul 8 '12 at 17:26
Which format are you using? Bear in mind that the Office Open XML formats (pptx, docx, etc) are not as well supported as the "traditional" binary formats (ppt, doc, etc, usually presented as "Microsoft Office 97/2000/XP"). – njsg Jul 8 '12 at 17:50
The format was the issue. The older formats seem to work. I just discovered that the notes from some of the new format files are there, but the formatting is way off. This might be easy to fix but I think saving in the old format first is the trick. Sorry. I thought I had tried this before and it didn't work but I guess not. – Robert Jul 19 '12 at 15:04
Is it really a linux unix matter ? libre office is running on any OS, I think this topic should be move to Super user non ? – Kiwy Nov 29 '13 at 14:33
