Hiya, Whirlists,

Who can recommend something PowerPoint-ish?

I just tried KPresenter, and:

a) it doesn't appear to have a zoom mode
(the magnifying-glass icon gives you
full-screen mode, instead, just the thing
you want when trying to draw some objects
to reasonable tolerances);

b) I created a simple compound object from
three elipses and a rectangle, grouped them,
then tried to re-size the group -- the group
bounding box remained the original size, and
the components all shrank away from each other
-- undo was not able to recover to the "pre-shrink"

c) I tried the "Help", and it was that nasty HTML
stuff that deliberately disables the browser's
"Back" button -- never mind that most of the
help items were just empty place-holders...

So, is there a useful PowerPoint-ish thingumie out
there, for Linux?

Who has had some success with what?
