Looking through the Introducing Writer Chapter 1 ( I have a few observations.

On page 8, Figure 9. The screenshot is wrong in as much as the Unsaved Changes icon is wrong. The figure shows an /unmodified since last save icon/. Text is missing from the Insert Mode area of the Status Bar. It should have *INSRT* or*OVER* within the box. The illustrative icons are now missing from the text of the *Unsaved changes* and *Digital signature* paragraphs. As a newbie and low-level user of Writer it was useful to know what these looked like.

I would like to reiterate my suggestion from some while back about the *Starting a new document* paragraph; i.e.

I suggest the second bullet point in /*Starting a new document */is altered to read “From the Quickstarter, if enabled in *Tools - Options – LibreOffice – Memory, *which is found in ...”.

The reason is that not all installations are set to load LibreOffice at start-up, so there is no Quickstarter to use. :-)

The observations below also refer to the wiki site documents.

I've just looked through the LibreOffice Writer Guide, Chapter 3 for 3.4.x branch on the site and have a few observations.

* In the pdf version viewed using Adobe Reader 9.4.6, the screenshots
for Figures 3, 4, and 5 are missing.
* The screenshot between figures 36 and 37 is not labelled i.e. no
Figure number allocated.
* The second Table, on page 11 is not captioned. Table 1 is captioned.

The latter two observations also apply to the ODT version.

I've published those few chapters of Getting Started and Writer Guide
for LO v3.4 that have been reviewed by both Hazel and me, and I have
put them on the wiki.

They are not yet linked from the website; I haven't had time. I'm also
a bit dubious about putting incomplete lists of chapters on the
website, even though I'm happy to have them on the wiki. What do you

By "on the website" I mean this page:
