What is an ODP file?

An ODP file is a presentation created by Impress, a presentation program included with the LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice suites. It contains a series of slides that may contain text, images, media, and transition effects. ODP files are similar to .PPTX files.

LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice are free open-source office suites similar to Microsoft Office. The suites include several applications, including Impress, a presentation application similar to Microsoft PowerPoint.

Impress allows users to create slide shows for lectures, project proposals, and other presentations. Impress saves users' slides as ODP files. To create an ODP file in Impress, select File → New → Presentation, then select File → Save As....

NOTE: ODP files are formatted using the OASIS XML-based OpenDocument standard, which The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) maintains.

How to open an ODP file

You can open an ODP file with various presentation programs, including OpenOffice Impress (cross-platform), Microsoft PowerPoint (cross-platform), LibreOffice (cross-platform), and Google Slides (Web, iOS, Android, Chrome OS).

You can also convert your ODP file to a PPTX file in all those programs. Note that you may lose some formatting when you open an ODP file in a program other than OpenOffice or LibreOffice or convert an ODP file to another presentation format.

How to convert an ODP file

Several presentation applications, including OpenOffice Impress and Microsoft PowerPoint, can convert ODP files to other formats.

For example, OpenOffice Impress can convert ODP files to many file types, including the following formats:

  • .OTG - OpenDocument Graphic Template
  • .SXD - StarOffice Drawing
  • .JPG - JPEG Image
  • .PNG - Portable Network Graphic
  • .EMF - Enhanced Windows Metafile

An ODP file may also be an organ definition project file created by Organ Builder Portable, a virtual pipe organ creation program used alongside GrandOrgue. It contains plain text data used to show and simulate an organ. Organ Builder Portable users can use ODP files to create GrandOrgue ORGAN files.

GrandOrgue is a free, cross-platform program that allows pipe organ enthusiasts to use a MIDI keyboard and PC to simulate a pipe organ. Because different real-world organs have different physical and audial characteristics, GrandOrgue allows users to simulate many different types of organs. Each simulated organ is saved as an ORGAN file.

Organists who want to create GrandOrgue organs can use Organ Builder Portable. The application, which Vincent Forman created, saves users' in-progress organ creation projects in ODP files. Then, after a user has finished creating their organ, they can open their ODP file with Organ Builder Portable and export it to the GrandOrgue ORGAN format.
