I have some .pptx presentation files, which were annotated with a stylus in an online class. These annotations do not show up in LibreOffice Impress in Xubuntu 20.04 (I am using the LibreOffice Fresh PPA).

  1. Is there any way to see these annotations with LibreOffice?

  2. If not, can they be viewed with any other free (as in freedom) software?

ONLYOFFICE claims to be higly compatible with MS Office formats, and it is released under AGPL.
There are many ways to install it in Ubuntu, use your favourite method.

It is a bit slow to start (this is not a snap only issue, even the .deb package takes a lot of time to start compared to libreoffice), but successfully loads annotated powerpoint presentations (verified by OP).

Snap Package

ONLYOFFICE is available as a snap and can be installed with

snap install onlyoffice-desktopeditors

Debian package

A .deb-package is also available.


Use the following commands to install it with Flatpak.

flatpak install flathub org.onlyoffice.desktopeditors
