OpenOffice.org or open source office suite, part 1 writer (Word) - video tutorial

OpenOffice.org is a free office software suite (Open source). The project is based on the source code of a previous version of StarOffice from Sun Microsystems. Precise name and not OpenOffice OpenOffice.org project, due to a trademark conflict. OpenOffice.org is a direct competitor of Microsoft Office suite, suite from Microsoft is the majority on the market. It has a similar interface and implements most of the functionality of commercial software. OpenOffice.org uses the OpenDocument file format standardized by OASIS, and its own set of formats, older but very close to OpenDocument. With few exceptions, OpenOffice.org can read and write and documents in Microsoft Office formats.
The components of OpenOffice.org are somewhat similar to those in the Microsoft Office suite, even the distinctive colors are similar; have been chosen to make it easier for users migrating from Microsoft Office to OpenOffice.org. It should be noted that unlike other office software packages, OpenOffice.org does not contain an application for each component but each component is integrated into the application itself. Thus, the user can proceed as follows: open a text document, modify it, close it without closing the application itself, then open a spreadsheet in the same application, modify it, etc.
Among the components of OpenOffice.org package interoperability are great, they can turn to each other anytime. The six main components are (in parenthesis is a correspondent of the Microsoft Office suite) Writer (Word), Calc (Excel), Impress (PowerPoint), Draw, Base (Access) and Math (Equation). There are other components that do not run separately but are integrated in the component where they were called, they're Chart, Media Player, Gallery, Quickstarter and Basic.
OpenOffice.org Package features can be added via a system add-ons similar to that of Firefox.
Writer, Writer Loosely translated, is the word processor of OpenOffice.org suite. Writer is not just a word processor but also fulfills other functions being called by other applications and OpenOffice.org. For example, OpenOffice.org Base, forms and reports are created with the writer, even if the form / final report is not saved as a separate file, but as an object form / report database file.
The window has a similar structure Microsoft Word window. By default, the window menu consists mainly of detachable toolbars (Standard and Formatting toolbar by default), the ruler of the editing and the status bar.
Besides the features of a word processor (check spelling / grammar, finding / replacing, dash automatic automatic generation of tables, attaching to e-mail and others), Writer has other key features such as patterns and styles, different methods The layout of the text (frames, headers, footers), attaching charts, graphs created in other components of OpenOffice.org, includes drawing tools, drawing tools included the integration of databases and export the document in Portable Document Format ( PDF).
In addition to the facilities described above, the writer has other facilities. One of them is the Navigator, the tool nonexistent in MS Office. Intstrumentul Navigator displays all objects in the document and allows quick jump ele.Navigatorul can also manage document chapters, moving them or changing their level.
Writer has many methods of text layout: columns, frames (frames), tables, sections, and they are very customizable. Frames are equivalent text boxes in Microsoft Word, but offers great flexibility. The frames can be included without problems text, images, tables, even objects. Unlike text boxes in Word, Writer frames can be linked together so that text frame in another frame to continue, wherever they are in the page or in the document.
Compared to Microsoft Word, Writer has several options for image manipulation, including Îmbatrânierea (Aging), Red / Green / Blue (Red / Green / Blue), Mosaic (pixelization) Relief (embossing), Posterize (Posterization) .
Drawing tools are similar to those in Word, but they are organized differently. Noteworthy is that there is button to draw lines broken (even if this option exist Draw component) and during free drawing (freeform, known as Scribble Office in Romanian), line drawings is rounded to the finished drawing not or corners.
WordArt is FontWork's equivalent word "FontWork" is formed by joining the word font and word work, meaning work or thing). FontWork sites behaves like any other object and filling accept custom (grandienduri, texture, pattern) but 3D models.
3D instruments are also similar to those in Word, even the menus and icons looks.
In the terminology Writer, a master document (in English master = master) is called a group of documents from the same book / thesis / report. Master documents are typically used to writing long documents, such as a book, a thesis, or a long report. A master document is especially useful when images, spreadsheets or other objects cause an appreciable size of the file that stores the job. Master documents are used and when the sections of a document lucreeaza by different people so that they will not need to exchange files.
Writer allows rapid conversion finished documents in Portable Document Format (pdf) which can be viewed from any computer with a PDF viewer. This feature allows the user to set other options, such as the quality of images included or password to open.

  13. incearaca other software, or come on the official website of TV tuner that you have and download the software there

  14. Dan please, help, it looks like I went to regional option languages ​​or so I think and I got a few buttons on the keyboard, what can I do? more precisely, it confuses y with z and others (I don't even know where to write a ron anymore). By the way, I followed the tutorial very carefully, head and tail.

  15. miranda: Dan please help, it looks like we walked in regional languages ​​option or so and I think they messed up a few buttons on the keyboard, what can I do? namely tangle y with z and others (I do not even know where to write to ron). otherwise very good tutorial I watched carefully cap - coada.astept response, bye.

    The phenomenon you described is normal.Atunci you want to use Romanian characters (a, i, s, t, a) must change the language from English to romana.Initial language is English usage (in the bottom right is written EN ). To use Romanian (RO) uses a combination of keys: Left ALT + SHIFT (or CTRL + SHIFT).

  16. no, Dan, there seems to be another problem that I don't realize. It's not about the letters and the fact that a few letters have been reversed as I told you y with z or another example - with ? and other keys were reversed (I struggled to write this text and even worse to send it because I don't know which key is written in ron).

  17. mirandaNo, Dan, it looks like there's another problem that I can not figure it's seama.nu points a i S T but that several letters were reversed as I told y to z or other example -? and other keys are reversed (I've tried to write this text and send it worse to not even know what key you write to ron).

    See that you have down in the taskbar on the right a "language bar" has a box on it that says EN or RO or right click on that box to set the keyboard language or go back to regional and language from the control panel and delete the keyboard ro. It is normal to change the order of your keys or to reverse some letters because the keyboard is no longer in English but in Romanian!

  35. Greetings. In connection with the wavy red underline that appears even now when I write here probably because I deliberately use RO characters, I want to know if anyone knows how to get rid of it in Word 2007. I don't understand why I wrote a part in RO and it didn't appear stressed and suddenly the new paragraph began to self-emphasize. It's eye-catching, I'd like to get rid of it.
