How do I create header or footer information in an OpenOffice.org presentation? I want my information to show up on every slide.


  • Go to the 'Background view' of the presentation [There are three small icons under the left side ruler - the middle icon is the 'Background view' - it looks like a box with a dark bottom edge].
  • To enter text, for example, click on the big 'T' icon on the left edge.
  • Create a text input area on your presentation by dragging your mouse in the desired location.

If you want to insert a page/slide number:

  • while still in Background view,
  • select: Insert-Fields-Page Numbers.

NOTE: There is no option for the total number of pages/slides, however, so if you need to enter 'Page X of N', you will have to hardcode the 'of N' portion.

When you are finished adding text/logos/etc. Click on the left-most icon under the left side ruler. This icon is called 'Slide view' and will return you to slide editing mode. Any slide in your presentation will have the data entered in 'Background view'.
