Right now, I'd appreciate it if anyone can please share how to do the following in Writer?

1. Suppress header on the first page of a text document

Use different page styles for the first and subsequent pages. Set the header only for the subsequent pages (or use an empty header on the first page). Either insert a manual page break after the first page or set the subsequent page style as the "next style" for the first page style. The existing "First Page" and "Default" page styles will do this for you automatically.

2. Keep a dotted line across a page without it automatically becoming a solid line

Either disable the facility at Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Options | Apply Border or - more easily - just use Edit | Undo (or Ctrl+Z) immediately the unwanted correction occurs.

3. Change line spacing - context menu - where's that?

Paragraph... | Indents & Spacing | Line spacing or Edit Paragraph Style... | Indents & Spacing | Line spacing, as appropriate.

4. Suppressing hyperlinks

Disable at Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Options | URL Recognition or use Edit | Undo (or Ctrl+Z) as above. Or right-click | Remove Hyperlink.

5. Indents  - where and how to change

Paragraph... | Indents & Spacing | Indent or Edit Paragraph Style... | Indents & Spacing | Indent.

6. Turn on/off Fast Save - so document doesn't leave personal info in a document

See Tools | Options... | Load/Save | General and File | Properties... | General.

7. Turn on/off the Track Changes tool

Edit | Changes > | Record.

8. Strike-through a word or sentence - context menu again?

Character... | Font Effects | Strikethrough or Edit Paragraph Style... | Font Effects | Strikethrough.

9. Eliminating hard returns

Depends on exactly what you want to do. Use "$" in regular expressions in Find & Replace.

10. Print file list of file names in a sub-directory

Ask your operating system.

11. (The question you didn't ask) Where do I find the answers to these questions?

Download the Writer Guide or study the embedded help system.  Or both.

I trust this helps.
