Thought it would be better to start a new thread for this. . . .

I have been doing some work on the "Writer - Quick Reference Guide and

page.  Tom created the Wiki page for me and I am starting to fill out the
different "outlined" sections.

I spent a bit of time on the "Supported Document file formats" and "Working
with the Tools - Options Menus" sections. I do not remember the three/four
letter "mime extensions" for some of the formats, so I hope someone can let
me know what they are.

I hope the "boxes" in the "Working with the Tools. . . " section under the
"LibreOffice" > "General" > "Help" sub-section will show up on other
people's browsers [and this email].

     ? Tips
     ? Help Agent
     ? Extended Tips

The "?" for these three lines was a "box" character that looks like the Check-Box in the option dialog box.

There should be a "box" before each of the three options there.  It shows
that these are check-box options, and will have that noted in the text

I hope other will help me fill in the information in this Wiki Page.  I have
no problem with people emailing me off list [""
or ""] with information to be included.  It would
be nice to have the text ready for copy/paste to Writer, and then after some
simple editing/spell-checking/etc., then it will be copy/paste to the Wiki

If someone has a list ofKeyboard Shortcuts or other "solutions and/or
answers" then it would help the task of creating this page go faster.

AFTER the Wiki page is far enough along, then the information on the page[s]
will be formatted to an .odtand/or .pdf file of 6, 8, or 10 page Quick Study
Guide and Cheat-Sheet. That "Quick Guide" will be online for anyone to
download, print and use. Personally, I would like to laminate the "sheet" so
it will not get crumpled or mangled with use.  The "professional" guide you
buy are most always laminated. The ones I buy are.

So, let us help out the Document Writers and createthis "Writer - Quick
Reference Guide and Cheat-sheet". Any one who wants to start working on the
Calc, Draw, Impress, Math, and Base sheets, be my guest.  I think they will
need to be on there own pages though.

It's good to see someone working on this, because it's been on the
wish list for documentation for a long time.

I have cc'd the Documentation mailing list on this reply, because
someone on that list might be able to help you or know where the info
you want is in the material we have produced already. For example,
most of the user guides have tables of keyboard shortcuts in an
appendix at the back (copied and slightly modificed from the help


Thanks Jean.

I am not on the documentation list, but wondering about that, since I am working on this Quick Guide sheet.

I was thinking about seeing if there was a possibility to use some of the text in the Writer Guide, etc., as part of this Quick Guide project. That was I/We do not need to rewrite our own text.

The last part of the "sheet" will have the URL for LO sites including where you find the .odt and .pdf documentation as in the Get Started and Writer Guide.

Right now, the current page URL may need to change. I think the current page might be better as "/Documentation/CheatSheetsWriter" and the current URL will have links to the pages for each of the Quick Guide Wiki pages and the final documents. I do not know how to do this, but it is not a high priority right now, but will be needed when Calc sheet is started. Writer Quick Guide will be the only one I am working for the future month or so.
