   You may try the AOO 3.4 new ones, which is on the way to publish. You
can get it from:

   What you did is one good place. ooo-dev mail list. Another good place
for problem and suggestion is BugZilla.

> Where is the database to check if my comments have already been handled?
   BugZilla is the database to report bugs, including problem or some
enhancements request.

What version I should use to be useful with my comments?

    You may modify the master page of impress if you plan modify the text
size from 32 to 22 for whole slides.

    I don't have this kind of problem against AOO 3.4, maybe you can try
