Summary of new features in OpenOffice.org 2.3

Filed under
OOo

Here’s a summary of the features from the 2.3 new features list that I considered the most useful or important to write about.

General

* This is convenient for anyone who prints to multiple printers, all over the world. You can load or ignore the printer settings for your documents. This means you don’t end up accidentally printing to the printer in building 4 which is on the opposite side of the country, just because you were on a business trip there last week and that’s where you last printed your document.

* If your document isn’t wider than the OpenOffice.org window, then it will be centered in the window, not left-aligned.

Writer and Web

* The HTML editor now has a preview feature. Choose File > Preview in Web Browser and the document opens in the default browser.
