Hi :)
The "Published Guides" for OpenOffice or LibreOffice are often the best
documentation for AOO or LO - at least for English readers.  The LO ones,
including incomplete books and archived versions, can be found at;

for free or bought from the Lulu bookstore as proper paper-back books.  I
bought a few of these and I'm really glad i did even though i haven't read
all of it yet!   I think i managed to time it right so that Lulu were
offering one of their frequent discount weekends or something.

The guides are also available in various App Stores or online book-stores
for reading on-screen; such as the Apple store, the Ubuntu one and maybe
others.  They usually cost a bit but not much.  Enough to cover the costs
of publishing them in those places and a little more to allow a bit of
expansion in their distribution.

Also available on the official LibreOffice website (for free of course!);

For non-English languages it is usually the 'in-built' help that is far

There are also on-line videos such as the excellent range at Spoken
although they cover a much wider range of OpenSource projects so you'd have
to hunt for LibreOffice in that lot :)  Also while English is excellent
they also do many languages from around the Indian basin as it's a
non-profit organisation largely funded by the Indian Government.
Regards from
Tom :)

difficult to move or rename resources which people probably have their

if it suddenly looked as different as a spam/spoofed-site.

I hope this clarifies why there may be problems with our documentation
instructions etc and maybe, hopefully show a way of dealing with the
immediate issue and/or how to set-up a strategy for helping fix what we

Thank you Tom for that interesting explanation of the documentation

It explains why I often have trouble finding answers there.  I keep a
local copy
of " 3 Writer Guide" on my machine and can often find answers
there faster than on the website.
