I had a very quick look at the PDF for the sorts of problems I typically
find in compiled books. I didn’t find any. If I have time, I’ll look again
for other things.

I did spot some page breaks that could be improved, but that’s very low

I regret I don’t have time to look closely at the contents of the index,
but I will do so eventually for consideration in the v7 book. I note now
that indexes are typically formatted in two columns, a low priority
formatting issue.

For publishing, you should put the files on the Publications page on the
wiki, as well as in NextCloud. Olivier will do whatever is needed for the
website. I will publish the printed version on Lulu when I have time.

The 6.4 Calc Guide is, I believe, almost ready for publication. The PDF
version is available for inspection in the relevant Published folder in
Nextcloud (CG64-CalcGuide.pdf).

If anybody wishes to have glance at the PDF over the next 24 hours then
feel free to do so; please email me if you spot any problems.

I am not happy with the front and back pages. These are SVG format
images in the .ODT file but lose something in the translation to PDF. Is
this a known effect and is there a recommended solution?

One aspect of the document has not yet been reviewed by anybody and that
is the alphabetical index at the back. I would encourage any team
members to inspect this and let us know your thoughts. I hope it is a
useful addition for the intended readers of the guide but others might
think otherwise. It is straightforward to remove it before publication
if that proves necessary.

Finally, please could one of our experienced publishers advise me of the
steps necessary to actually publish a guide (beyond placing all the
files in the Published folder)?
