David, comments are interleaved in your note below, in addition to these.

I have edited the file and replaced it in Drafts on Alfresco, so you
can see what I've done.

I also produced a clean copy incorporating all the changes and placed
it into Proofing so Gabriel or Hazel (or anyone) can have a crack at

BTW, when I was playing around with moving and copying sheets, I
discovered two things that are not new but were never written up in
any earlier version of the Calc Guide, as far as I can tell:
(1) As well as moving a sheet within a spreadsheet using drag-and
drop, you can also copy a sheet by holding down the Control key while
dragging. I added some info about this.
(2) The Move/Copy dialog isn't new; it's just been redesigned, and
that brought it to my attention on the features list.

Gabriel, when you've done some more chapters of the Calc Guide, you
may have some new screenshots to replace the Windows ones. If so, and
if those screenshots are also used in this Getting Started chapter,
you or David should revisit this chapter and replace the screenshots

Here is an update of what I have done, and I hope I did not overlook something:

I forgot to mention a comment I made on page 8.  What do you think?

Good idea. I copied the picture that Gariel had produced for the Calc Guide.

I removed the phrase "allows you to".  I found no other examples of this phrase.

I found at least one instance of "allows the user to" and edited it out.

5) The first paragraph on page 17 under the heading needs to be amended.

Do you mean the paragraph under "Inserting new sheets"?  What do you want me to change?

No, I meant the paragraph under the main heading "Working with
sheets", which now includes copying and moving.

p.36 I used OOoTextBody for the text, and the Definition styles for the definitions, using the 
definitions on page 36 as a guide.

The Definition lists use two styles: "OOoDefinition Term" for the
bolded first line (a paragraph on its own) of each item, and
"OOoDefinition" for the following paragraph.

The items needing replacement are actual arrows, and you should see
them in all the menu paths given in the chapter. To find them by
searching, you'll need to copy one and paste it into the Find &
Replace dialog. When you do replace them, you need to ensure that all
the ">" are in the correct character style (OOoMenuPath).

I copied an arrow, and did a find and replace with a ">" - but, all it did was give me an arrow 
and a ">", and I could not delete the arrow.

Most of the arrows were replaced as one would expect, though a few
were not (I've now fixed them). I don't know why you couldn't delete
the arrow in a few instances.

Also, is there a way of adding a style to this character at once for all of its 96 instances?

AFAIK, you cannot apply a character style using Find and Replace. One
can record a macro to do the job, but otherwise it's a manual

I went to:
and downloaded the template changer without a problem;
However, at:
It said: "There is currently no text in this page."
So, nothing was done with the template.

Regarding that empty wiki page: I assume you followed a link from
somewhere to get there. Do you recall where you got that link? We'll
need to fix it so it doesn't cause problems for other people.

I typed in the URL, not from a link.  The same error message appears.

I guess my question wasn't clear. Where did you find that URL? Was it
on the website, on the wiki, in one of our documents (if so, which
one), or somewhere else?
