Hello Jean and Olivier
I have a quick look at this notebook bar and user interface draft. Not
impressed at the moment.
For one the use of notebook bar confused me being a Mac user.. Could the
name be changed to something more appropriate so users can easily recognize
what it is for?
Why is this draft chapter using Chapter 3. In Draw Chapter 3 is Working
with Objects. Suggest this draft chapter is placed at the end of the guide
as it is customization. Could possibly become an appendix?
Will be able to investigate more in-depth next week when I am back home.
Presently lying in a hospital bed recovering a successful minor op.
Let me know your thoughts.

Hello Olivier,
Thanks, I have downloaded that file, which looks like a good place for
me to start. Machine translation seems to be going well, though much
editing will be needed. It's giving me some ideas for a more general
chapter and for the Writer Guide.

Hello Peter,
I expect to finish the first pass of machine translation later today.
I can send you the translated file as a starting point for your work,
to save you needing to do that. In addition to editing, I think much
additional explanation will be needed; but that is of course up to
you. Most of the chapter is too Impress-specific for my immediate

Hello Jean and Olivier
Thanks for the info about the Notebook bar and the Impress Guide. I
shall download the Portuguese file and machine translate, then incorporate
in the next version of the Impress Guide.
However, I have seen some good intel that Apple maybe dropping the
Notebook bar from the Mac range. It does not a have good reviews amongst
Apple users. I have not seen or used one yet so have no opinion on its
Is the LibreOffice Notebook bar the subject of the Portuguese Notebook
bar chapter?

Hello Jean

Raul Pacheco da Silva from the team in Brazil wrote a chapter on the
notebook bar for the Impress Guide and can also be used in the Getting
started guide. However it is in Portuguese and has not been reviewed.

In case you want to use it as a starting point for the subject
(perhaps using machine translation) the file is located in

LibreOffice Documentation/Brazilian Portuguese/Guia do
Impress/7.0/Primeira Tradução/IG7014-InterfacedoUsuario.odt

Kind regards

Hi team,
I can’t find any response to my question from 3 March, though I could
missed it. Now that I’ve finished updating the Writer Guide, I’m again
considering this new document.
I expect it would be approximately the length of a typical chapter in
user guide, so it could perhaps be included in the Getting Started
Any thoughts on this? Especially if someone else has already done it,
something similar.

Is there a document describing and explaining details of the various
notebookbar configurations?
I've seen what's in the Help and the release notes, but I want
something to point people to, that is more detailed, descriptive and
explanatory, and that collects all the info in one place. Sorry if
I’ve overlooked something in the publications.
If it doesn’t exist, I will write it, but I don’t want to duplicate
effort. Too many other things to do!
