Impress is in some ways weaker than PowerPoint. If you're currently using Word for presentations, though, Impress will of course provide you with a lot more features. Impress is fairly straightforward to get started with. I suggest reading the following:
- Using Impress, general:
- Where to find Impress templates
- How to point to Impress templates and make them available when you create a new presentation
- Creating a master page (controlling how the background and text formatting look)
- Printing handouts
