But then I realized that this was one of my worst deals ever.
My first exprerience with Presentations 2018 was: I opened one of the three included mini-presentations, switched to presentation mode, and the program crashed. I loaded it again, presentation mode - the crash could be repeated reliably.
Meanwhile I installed Softmaker Office 2018 Pro on two computers (win 10) and I collected some frustrating experiences:
- Object animations on a single slide do work, but slide transitions don't. I can choose what I want - no transition.
- When I press the key (or the mouse buttion) to trigger an object animation or a slide transition, the presentation tool does not react immediately but waits a bit (a few seconds or even longer) until something happens. - I could reproduce this failure on both computers.
- The presentation tool did crash sometimes in presentation view mode without an obvious reason. And it crashed reliably when I tried to save a *.prd file as a *.prdx or as a *.pptx file format.
So, dear Softmakers, maybe this tool runs smoothly on your computers, but it doesn not by far on every average computer. So count this review as some kind of beta-testing and hurry to improve "Presentations", or Softmaker Office 2018 Pro will become a disaster!
