I've recently configured a multi screen setup in my linux box. So i decided to try out the multi screen functions provided by openoffice in order to keep the presentation editor in the first screen while showing the presentation on the second screen. But i was greeted by extremely bad performances: pratically the animations are so slow that i can see only one frame per second making them really bad. So i did various tries and these were my results: impress editor in screen 1 and presentation in screen 2: bad performance impress editor in screen 2 and presentation in screen 1: bad performance impress editor in screen 2 and presentation in screen 2: acceptable performance impress editor in screen 1 and presentation in screen 1: acceptable performance these were done with separate x screens (no xinerama) and it seems only in the case the impress editor lies in a different screen can cause the problem if i enabled xinerama support these problems disappeared and performance are acceptable in any configuration but this isn't a solution! ===>>>To reproduce the problem just go in NVIDIA settings application and in x server display configuration configure the second monitor to be on the right of the first and as "Separate X screen" don't enable xinerama, save the xorg.conf file and restart xserver. Then open openoffice impress and make a presentation (whathever add a slide effect in the presentation wizard i used the latest effect listed diagonal squares) then go to (translation from italian) presentation => presentation setup and choose a the second monitor (different than the one were the impress window is) and then try starting a presentation you will notice extremely crappy performance for a modern computer. This is my configuration - Intel T7300 cpu @ 2ghz (dynamic cpu freq scaling) - NVIDIA 8600 M GT gpu with 173.08 drivers - an intel centrino duo overall architecture - Ubuntu 7.10 gutsy - kernel 2.6.25 - gnome 2.20.1 enviroment - monitor one is 1280x800 (DVI internal link/TFT) , monitor two 1024x768 (VGA/CRT). i will update to hardy in the next days so i will update the bug when i will be able to check openoffice 2.4 but as i can't see anything related to double monitors in changelogs and performance improvements lists most probably the problem is still there. Thanks for the attention.

Because 2.4.x is out of maintenance, please check if the issue is always there in OOo 3.2.x.
