It makes a lot of sense. Hopefully the proper LO documentation is far better than most! The Pdfs
allow you to click on items in the Table-of-Contents and has other clickable links to help you
navigate to where you want quickly.
The built-in help is probably fairly poor right now. The docs team needs more people even to get
through the proper full guides let alone important extras like the built-in help or the Faq. On
the plus side they are really getting through the work and the 3.4.x guides have been pulled
together in an amazingly short time.
They have an excellent team right now even though some of the regular long-term stars appear to be
taking a breather (or are they working hard behind the scenes? It's difficult to know)
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. Fanboyism by Tom.
Back on topic:
Calc is almost identical to Excel and Gnumeric. Point! Conceptually is
still similar to any spreadsheet since 1979 (a reference sheet for
VisiCalc is still online).
A function reference for Excel or Gnumeric can help you to work with
Calc if you really understand the content and that it does not apply
There is no need to know each and every function in detail. What you
need to know _and_understand_ is:
- Text vs. Number (and vs. Boolean in other applications)
- Format vs. Value (percent, bool, date/time formatting in particular)
- Relative vs. absolute reference
- The lookup functions of all spreadsheets are somewhat special. In the
first place they had been designed for something that is not that much
required by today's spreadsheet users.
- The most serious incompatibility between Calc and anything else is the
radically awkward string processing which makes it unusable for too many
of today's users.
