Allow quick editing
If on, you can edit text immediately after clicking a text object. If off, you must double-click to edit text.
In a presentation or drawing document, you can also activate the text editing mode through the Allow Quick Editing icon in the Options bar.
Only text area selectable
Specifies whether to select a text box by clicking the text.
In the area of the text box that is not filled with text, an object behind the text box can be selected.
In a presentation or drawing document, you can also activate this mode through the Select Text Area Only icon in the Options bar.
Use background cache
Specifies whether to use the cache for displaying objects on the master slide. This speeds up the display. Unmark the Use background cache option if you want to display changing contents on the master slide.
Copy when moving
If enabled, a copy is created when you move an object while holding down the CommandCtrl key. The same will apply for rotating and resizing the object. The original object will remain in its current position and size.
Objects always moveable
Specifies that you want to move an object with the Rotate tool enabled. If Object always moveable is not marked, the Rotate tool can only be used to rotate an object.
Do not distort objects in curve (only in drawings)
Maintains relative alignment of Bézier points and 2D drawing objects to each other when you distort the object.
Unit of measurement

Add spacing between paragraphs and tables
Specifies that LibreOffice Impress calculates the paragraph spacing exactly like Microsoft PowerPoint.
Microsoft PowerPoint adds the bottom spacing of a paragraph to the top spacing of the next paragraph to calculate the total spacing between both paragraphs. LibreOffice Impress utilizes only the larger of the two spacings.
