Re-applying OpenOffice Impress Notes view template (Fix for blank (empty/missing) slide preview in “Notes” page view)

If the following issues are driving you nuts in OpenOffice Impress (like it has done for me…):

  • Impress no longer display / displays a white slide thumbnail in the "Notes" page view
  • You’ve accidentally deleted the slide thumbnail in the "Notes" page view and would like to get it back
  • You’ve changed the notes master but the note pages retains their layout

I have got just the fix for you:

Impress apply notes layout click actions

To apply this layout over all your slides, simply select all slides, then click on the Notes layout template (as above).

It’s so simple I know, but it took me a while to find it… Guess I’m still retarded!
