My ultimate goal is to migrate from Windows to Linux.  Before I do that I
need to assure myself that software running under Linux can do what I've
been doing in the past with various Windows programs.

I'm very comfortable with WordPerfect having used it for almost 25 years. 
Nevertheless, like much software I only use a small fraction of its
capabilities.  From what I can see LibreOffice is more than capable of
matching everything WordPerfect does.  I expect I won't use nearly all of
its capabilities. 

The real challenge is making myself learn how to use it.  I have a lot of
forms in WordPerfect that were tedious to create, such as bankruptcy and
child support pleadings.   I'm not crazy about redoing those in LibreOffice. 
Yet, if I get them like I want them I'll have mastered enough of the program
that I can make a smooth migration.

Change is inevitable.


     Do you have the Writer Guide for LibreOffice? You can find it here:
     On this same web page is a chapter on macros: Getting Started with
macros (ch 13 in the Getting Started Guide. This might help some, but it
might not.
