Errors and Suggestions for LibreOffice Writer Guide.
To match the screen-shot, the last sentence of the text above Figure 58
ought to read ... “In the example, English (Australia) has been chosen
for all the appropriate settings except User Interface.”.
The third line of the fourth paragraph reads “For example, if you decide
that all the headings should be blue (such as in this guide), you only”
. The word 'blue' should be replaced with the word 'green', as all
headings are green.
The text of step 8 should match the screen-shot in Fig. 303 (as it does
in the OpenOffice.org Writer guide page 353 for its Fig. 295).
Step 5 refers to a non-existent step 7. It is likely that the paragraph
below Fig. 307 starting “The document is now ..” should be numbered as
Fig. 307 screen-shot does not match the text, showing as it does
“![Points.Sheet1.Last Name]” instead of “![Points.Sheet1.Company]” as in
the text of step 6c.
The text/screen-shot is also referred to on page 297, in step 4.
/Page 294./ Suggestion.
The unnumbered screen-shot with a large black ellipse contained within,
appears unnecessary. The text within the paragraph appears to be
adequate in describing what's present. In the event that a screen-shot
is deemed necessary, then the large black ellipse surely is not
required, given that only two choices are available.
Step 6's last sentence is incorrect and should read “;otherwise continue
with “Removing blank lines from labels””.
The '*Caution*' should read “step 3)” not “step c)”.
In the 'Printing' section, step 3's 4^th paragraph should be “6” and not
The /*TIP */is wrong. Both the Addressee and Sender dimensions can be
altered in their Position boxes. Clicking the *New Doc. *Button with the
dimensions shown**in the screen-shot shown below produces an envelope
document with the fields placed as directed.
Has the screen-shot for Fig. 313 been taken from OpenOffice.org Writer?
A bug(?) in their Writer prevents the fields in the envelope layout
being seen, though I believe it's been rectified for their next release.
LibreOffice shows it correctly as shown below. I suggest the screen-shot
is replaced with a LibreOffice screen-shot.
I think step 4's second paragraph should read “and dropping,
/*then*/click...”, and not “and dropping, /*than*/click ...”.
Redo paragraphs 4 and 5 as below. This change brings the setting of the
Sender box to a point before the setting of the Addressee fields,
particularly for anyone being directed off to drag and drop.
“4) Select the *Envelope *tab.
(Fig 315 inserted here).
Choose whether or not to add Sender information to the envelope by
selecting or deselecting the Sender check-box. If wanted, edit the
information in the Sender box (Sender is the “from”on the envelope).
You now have the choice of creating the Addressee fields by dragging and
dropping from the data source headings (as described in “Creating a form
letter” on page 291, and in particular in Figure 305) or using the
facilities of this tab.
If you prefer dragging and dropping, then click *New Doc.*, drag your
data source headings into the Addressee area on your new envelope and
skip to step 7), otherwise continue with steps 5 and 6.
5) Verify, add, or edit the information in the Addressee box. You can
use the right-hand drop-down lists to select the database and table from
which you can access the Addressee information, in a similar fashion to
that described for “Printing mailing labels”, paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 on
page 295. The similarity of the method with Figure 311 and Figure 312
will be clear.”.
Step/ 6's third paragraph to read as follows.
“You can now further modify the placement and size of the frames
containing the sender(if inserted) and addressee information, or make
further changes to the character and paragraph attributes (for example,
the font) or add a logo or other graphic to the envelope. Modify the
frame by first clicking on the frame's boundary; modify its size by
clicking on and dragging the green handles; change its position by
clicking and dragging from within the frame's boundaries.”.
The /*TIP */within step 7 ought to reclassified as a /*NOTE */as it only
explains why the following text is there and points out a similarity
with another section.
/Step 7 c).
At the end of the first sentence, change 'label' to 'envelope'.
In the second sentence, add the word 'character' between 'line' and
'and' thus; “the new line /character /and then press ...”.
Paragraph 3 of /*Merging and printing the envelopes.
*/The following text is wrong. “If you wish to check the envelopes
before printing them, see Step 9 of “Creating a form letter” on page 291
This step does not exist. I suggest replacing it with …
“If you wish to check the envelopes before printing them, see “Editing
merged documents” on page 294 for instructions”.
Step 7's first sentence ought to read “Step 7 creates all your letters,
one per recipient.” instead of “In step 7, creates all your letters, one
