OpenOffice.org: Could You Explain That A Little Bit More?
Posted By April On August 2, 2011 @ 11:55 AM In OpenOffice | No Comments
All the tool-bars, containing what feels like a million buttons, can sometimes overwhelm someone who isn’t familiar with them.
As you slide your pointer over them, you get something that looks like this:
It’s really just a label, which may not do a whole lot for you… so now what?
Here’s a quick and easy way to temporarily get a bit more information about a specific button without actually using it and then regretting the choice.
Shift + F1
Yep – that’s the whole trick – when you use Shift + F1 your pointer will have a small ? added to it.
Once that change has taken affect you’ll now see this explanation for that same button.
To turn the feature off simply use the Esc key.
That’s all there is to it – more explanation in a temporary form that can be disabled with a single key.
