First Excerpt from “Designing with LibreOffice” Released Separately

Friends of OpenDocument has released Choosing Fonts, the first of five 
excerpts from Bruce Byfield’s Designing with LibreOffice. Although 
focused on LibreOffice, both the original and the full book also largely 
apply to Apache OpenOffice and NeoOffice.

Like Designing with LibreOffice, Choosing Fonts is available as a free 
download from 
Hardcopy versions will be available shortly.

In the five months since its release in March 2016, Designing with 
LibreOffice has had over 16,000 downloads. “That’s more than I could 
ever have imagined,” Byfield says. “However, its five hundred pages are 
more than many people want to read. Often, they just want information on 
a very specific topic. Excerpts like Choosing Fonts are a way to make 
the information in the complete book more accessible.”

As the title suggests, Choosing Fonts is about the considerations that 
go into choosing fonts. Topics include matching fonts, the availability 
of free-licensed fonts, determining line spacing, and how the selection 
of fonts can guide other design considerations from paragraph 
indentations to page margins.

Future excerpts will be:

    - Styles and Templates

    - Character and Paragraph Styles

    - Frame, List, and Page Styles

    - Slide Shows, Drawing, and Spreadsheets

All excerpts, including Choosing Fonts, contain the latest revisions to 
Designing with LibreOffice, including indexes and suggestions from the 
French translation team.
