OpenOffice: Help With A Bit More Contrast

OpenOffice: Help With A Bit More Contrast

Previously we took a look at the OpenOffice Help Agent and what he could do to make our days a bit easier.

One of the great things it does is to take us directly to the program’s help window and show us exactly why he showed up in the first place.

What I’d like to show you today goes along with that as well as any other help you may seek with OpenOffice.

Specifically, we’re going to look at the viewing options for the help window.

No, I don’t mean the setup of the help area itself but instead the contrast used to present the information. Choosing the best contrast for you could make it a bit easier to weed your way through all the text that tends to come in help windows for all programs.

So, let’s take a look at what’s available.

There are five options: Default, High Contrast #1, High Contrast #2, High Contrast Black and High Contrast White.

As you can see, they vary quite a bit and once you’re into the high contrast stuff the line spacing is larger.

If any of those look like a good plan to you then you’ll want to go to the Tools menu, Options choice.


In the area, General section you can make your choice in the Help formatting drop-down list.

Click OK when you’re happy with your selection.

And there you have it – help that gives you a little help seeing it clearly.
