How to add slide number in Impress

LibreOffice Impress is a good tool to create presentations. It is a good habit to have slide numbers in your slides. This helps the audience keep track of progress and also to refer to a particular slide.

To add slide numbers:

  • LibreOffice 4.2.x: Go to Insert > Page Number > Slide

  • LibreOffice 4.4.x: Go to Insert > Header and Footer > Slide

  • Check the Slide number option.

  • The above option adds a slide number on the first slide too. Typically, this is the title slide, where a slide number does not look appropriate. If you feel so, then check the Do not show on first slide option.

  • Remember to click Apply to All. If you click Apply instead, it will apply only to the current slide!

Tried with: LibreOffice, LibreOffice and Ubuntu 14.04
