Simple Summer Tips for Easier Use of OpenOffice.org Writer

Filed under
OOo

Here's the summer vacation reading equivalent of some everyday OpenOffice.org tips. Some new, some not. It's just how I use the program, things that make it easier.

* I always start OpenOffice.org by starting Writer, then keep it open and create or open new Calc, Writer, Base documents, etc. I probably run OOo slower than some people but I like having all the documents open, and just creating or opening new ones from the menu of whatever OpenOffice.org document's menu is available.

* I use, as much as possible, the File > Recent Documents menu. Any document you've created and closed recently is likely to show up there.
