Ten fantastic keyboard shortcuts in OpenOffice.org

Filed under
OOo

A lot of software users I meet seem to feel they are not using their software as efficiently as they could. If that includes you, then listen up. Here is my list of the ten, lesser-known, OpenOffice.org Writer keyboard shortcuts that will help you improve your productivity.

When I say “lesser known” I should really say poorly documented or not documented at all. That said, when I’ve taught on keyboard shortcuts in the past these are the ones that fewer users seem to know of. Something else to note is that although these are all for Writer, you may find some of them in other word processors as well.

Moving paragraphs

Ever wanted to move a entire paragraph up or down in your document? Cut and paste may work but it takes time. A more elegant solution is to just move the paragraph itself.

* Place your cursor in a paragraph.
* Now use CTRL+ALT+ up or down cursor arrows to move the whole paragraph up and down in the document one paragraph at a time
* CTRL+up/down works on some set-ups as well.
