I am not the best person to create a final chart/guide/sheet. Due to the 3 strokes, my communication skills were affected so I do not have an easy time trying to get the correct/proper wording out - halk the times I need to do so.

I will look into what is being done and see what can be done to make one for LO. I will see about an outline of what is to be gathered and some basic ideas of what needs to be included. BUT, I do not want to be the guy to do the work all by his lonesome. I have too many projects in the past where I started with a group and ended up doing the work for the bosses all by myself. I may be able to do something I would like to see, but I am really eclectic about some things.

Also, it will be a few weeks before I can devote any real time to such a project. I have a lot of things going on that needs to be done "yesterday" on my to-do list. When they are caught up and such, I will look into the project.

As I stated, I will look into buying a laminated guide in a week or two and see what that company does. I will be weeks before I get the sheet on my hands. If there are any GOOD freely downloadable guides/sheets out there, please forward their URLs to me at my "" address. That way I will have those emails outside my LO list folders and easily dealt with.

That would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sure many on this list would discover new features/functions (or
easier ways to do them) and I and other newbies would be grateful for
a quick guide to Writer and even Calc down the road.

How can we all help you?

Perhaps, if we could share the functions we use most often in Libre
Writer and how we do them we could all help contribute to the quick
start guide or short FAQ?

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
2. Keep a dotted line across a page without it automatically becoming
a solid line
3. Change line spacing - context menu - where’s that?
4. Suppressing hyperlinks
5. Indents  - where and how to change
6. Turn on/off Fast Save - so document doesn't leave personal info in a document
7. Turn on/off the Track Changes tool
8. Strike-through a word or sentence - context menu again?
9. Eliminating hard returns
10. Print file list of file names in a sub-directory

Then, we could add these 10 items to the Libre Writer Quick Start Guide!!

Thanks so much,

  Maybe, after this coming holiday, I will look into ordering one of
the Word or MSO laminated "quick study guides" from BarChart, Inc. They did a great job with the Medical and
Mathematics guides I bought back in 2000-2002.  I bought the Windows
98 guides for my wife, and they were good for her.  So It would be
interesting to see what the "professional" guide making company does
for Word or MSO.

I would love to find a Word study guide sheet - download for free -
but I have not seen any.  I have not really looked for any either,

To be honest, if we have some guides to look at, then we may have some
ideas on what might be useful to have in a quick study guide or quick
reference guide.

Well, after the current holiday, I will look more into this topic.
Maybe I will be able to start something in December.
