Your Feature Presentation

Conclusions

As our example demonstrates, creating presentations with Inkscape isn't that difficult once you've mastered the drawing features.

However, there are some minor downsides: For example, to display fonts correctly, they have to be available on the presentation computer. If in doubt, you should therefore use standard fonts.

You could also use Google fonts. However, Inkscape does not yet have the ability to add CSS, so this would have to be done manually. Optionally, you could also convert the text objects into paths. However, this would mean sacrificing index capability, and you would no longer be able to edit the text with the text tool.
