Paying special attention to the Styles Chapters is definitely
    important; maybe the most important chapters to look at.A guidance for LibO beginners could 
help to move people from MSO to
    LibO. I observe that many people are sticking with MSO because with
    huge efforts they learned to use MSO (most often just very basics)
    and don't want to take an effort to learn something new without a
    good guidance.On 2012-11-14 20:38, Tom Davies wrote:
Hi:)I think just working through the "Getting Started" guide helps

        MS-anything so;1.They didn't do so many of the weirdnesses that people learn
        to use to really stuff-up their documents and make them
        unreadable to everyone that isn't using their system2.There is some hope of pushing them 
straight into using LORegards fromTom :)

                    Comparison Chart
When I wrote my comment I was not thinking about the
                change of a font, but getting something whichhelps to understand how Writer work 
and a support to
                "unlearn" Word. I am currently struggling withunlearning Word and Power Point.On

                with Word 2007, so anychart made for Word 2003 could be very different
                for one made for Word 2007.I'm not sure how effective a chart would be, for
                LibO and Word, in manyways, just think differently. LibO uses not only
                paragraph styles but alsopage styles, which is a completely foreign concept
                to MS. So, it's not justabout hitting a sequence of mouse clicks in the
                right order; it's aboutrelearning how to create, edit, and format
                documents. There are typicallyseveral ways to accomplish a task, and the LibO
                method that is most likeWord may not be the best way to get things done. To
                get the most out ofLibO, you might find yourself having to
                deliberately unlearn Word. To besure, you can find things in the Writer menu that
                are similar to the Wordmenu, but the power of an office suite comes in
                learning how the programthinks, which is working at a deeper level than
                simply selecting a font froma drop-down box, etc.Virgilps. Can someone "fix" the 
annoying feature of this
                list that you must hit "reply all" to send areply to the list? I'm constantly 
sending out
                duplicates of my messages because my first one onlywent to one person. No other 
list I belong to has
                that behavior. My apologies to Dr. Stapf for thererun.-----Original Message-----

Re: [libreoffice-users] Word 2003 to Libre
                Writer - Comparison ChartI know that the creation of such a tool would take
                very important dev resources, but it would be agood tool to promote LIbO Writer.But 
why to compare with Word 2003? As far as I know
                a big change has taken place with Word 2007 (or2010?)/On 2012-11-13 02:27, charles

                how to perform certaintasks in Word compared to how you effect them
                in WordPerfect.It's an easy chart to check (and learn) Word if
                you've been a WordPerfect user.Ex. Ctrl/F8 will perform a certain task in
                WordPerfect but that sametask is done with different function key
                combinations in WordI was wondering if anyone has come across a
                similar comparison chartfor Libre Writer and Word, especially Word
                2003?The chart would show how a task is done in Word
                and then next to itwould reveal how that task is done in Libre
                Writer.Thanks so much,Charles.--For unsubscribe instructions e-mail to:
