IntroductionStarOffice Writer Handbook
Upon writing this book, individuals using StarOffice Writer on a daily basis were asked about the type of things that they wanted in a Writer book. The overwhelming response was, "Don't go into long explanations on what the features are, just give us an example and tell us the exact steps to perform the task." And accordingly, this is the fundamental precept for this book. You won't find lengthy explanations that don't get the job done; instead, you'll learn when a task should be performed and the exact steps to make it happen—fast!
For example, we all know what a table of contents is: you use it to locate specific places in your document according to main headings and other in-text references, such as tables or illustrations. As you might guess, this book explains how to open your document, perform the steps, and end up with a table of contents.
This example segues nicely into talking about the table of contents contained in this book. It is organized so that instead of having sections listed according to the menus or commands in the book, they are listed based on the task you want to perform. (Of course, they are arranged based on similar Writer features so that you don't have to look through the entire table of contents each time you want to find something.) For example, if you want to know how to create a new template, find the chapter on "Styles and Templates" and locate the section "To Create a New Template." It will be there, instead of being buried in an unrelated section as a fifth level header that, by the way, might not even get listed in the table of contents. Of course, you can and should use the index as well, but this book makes both the table of contents and the index a valuable resource for finding the tasks you want to perform.
In today's busy work-world, where things need to happen fast, StarOffice Writer Handbook will have you quickly working with even the most complicated tasks. Feedback
