OpenOffice.org: Did You Notice the Menu?

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011 by | Filed Under: OpenOffice
 
Loading...


When OpenOffice.org opens we see this:

ooo_full_welcome_win

I’m willing to bet that many of you see this and make a choice from the center of the screen… I know that’s what I did at first.

However, if we all slow down for a second and take a real look we’d see that there are menus up in the left corner.

ooo_filemenu_welcome_win

What I found that caught my attention the most is that if I was going to open a program… let’s use Writer as our example… and then turn around and start a wizard to create something like a letter or agenda, ┬áthen by using what’s available from the get go will avoid an entire step in the process.

Choosing the File menu / Wizard sub-menu then choosing a wizard from the list will start the wizard, walk you through the steps then start the appropriate program while creating the document.

One choice… both program and wizard started… I call that a time saver and I’m always open to knowing a new one of those!

    I just made a presentation about OO yesterday. It has been replaced by LibreOffice (LO).
    I did a bit of research and it seems that Oracle are now the new owners of Sun Microsystems (who did OpenOffice). There was a statement on-line that Oracle are not going to continue support for OpenOffice.
    A Foundation has taken over the Open Source programming. The product is renamed LibreOffice and is still free to download. I noticed that OO is still available with a request for payment to Oracle.
    Google ‘filehippo libreoffice’ to get the full story.
    Keep up the good work, thanks.
