As my professional life takes a turn towards giving more and more
presentations, I am looking for a solution on how to deal with slides and
slide shows/presentations in a flexible and OS way.
I have been building presentations using both scribus and OOimpress on and
off, in either case utilizing pdf as the presented format.
Both of these solutions (along with M$ counterparts), however are
presentation centric, meaning slides are handled in an independent manner
only with difficulty.
What I am looking for is a solution that will
a) allow me to create non-themed, independent slides (adhering to a given
formatting rule set)
b) store and manage these slides in a light box-like (think digikam) manner
c) makes it easy to combine the slides into a presentation (pdf)
d) allows me to overlay the non-themed slides in a given presentation with a
custom slide design (also adhering to the constrains referred to in a)).
Does anybody have any idea on how to tackle this? Th best I can come up with
is a workflow involving slides as png (transparency), managed with digikam
and combined/themed/format converted through scripting via imagemagic.
Probably duable, but not very convenient, ...
Thanks for any hints,
