OpenOffice.org Impress broken file links

One problem I encountered today when I copied the the Impress presentation to another computer was that the graphics showed broken links. What happened was that the images in the presentations was not embedded into the copied Impress document. This meant that the document was looking for the source file.

Since it is a common problem (I have heard of this too many times), I will briefly explain a solution on this.

1. Open the original Impress document where all files (example graphics) can appear.

2. Choose Index ->Links

3. Select all the source files and click the "Break Link" button.



4. Click "Close" button.

The Impress file may appear larger after embedding the graphics and other files.
