Of course, I shouldn't be trying to cram too much text onto one slide, but in some cases you might be going slightly over. Doing it in Keynote might save some work in getting your slides ready, but I do like having the whole outline to work with in OO.
Yes, sometimes. What I do is put the cursor at a suitable point, do a <shift-cmd-downarrow> to highlight to the end of the overflow, cut that, insert a new slide after the current one and then paste the text into that, which will have the same master as the one above it. Type the title in again if necessary.
You're right, one shouldn't be cramming too much in ... but if you are putting up a quote from some source, for instance, it can go a bit over. If it's only a little over, I'll try reducing the size of the text on that slide by a point.
