OpenOffice.org Slideshow Tip for Mac OS X
I use Keynote to prepare most of my presentations but I do use PowerPoint and OpenOffice.org from time to time. One thing that frustrated me about OpenOffice.org is that I could never seem to get the slideshow mode running right. Invariably, the slideshow would display but I would have either the menubar or doc from the desktop running alongside the presentation. Since OpenOffice.org is a X11 app, if you run X11 in full screen mode you can display the OpenOffice.org slideshow without any funny screen issues. You set full screen mode via X11 Preferences. Then you can use Command-Option-A to toggle between the X11 and Mac OS X desktops.
