Impress background and fonts

Hello everyone,

i have some problems with Impress (using currently 3.2.0 with Ubuntu 10.04):

- I'm unable to change the background of the slides... (i have tried with page-format, but nothing happens...).

- And unfortunatly i have not few files with "wrong" fonts (not common, so with some pc i obtain wrong fonts), i would like to know if there is a way to change everything to e.g. Arial without having to select the text inside every text box.

Here is a file with that background (iirc started from a model, and that doesn't export well to pdf and doesn't print well too, i would like a white one) and with some different fonts:

Thank you in advance

Found out how to have a white background:

From the menu (sorry in italian): Visualizza - Sfondo - Maschera

highlight the background, and press del in order to delete it.

Then from Menu: Visualizza - Normale and the background is white.

So now the problem is only how to change the font in all the document.

Thank you again.


background, fonts, impress,
