OpenOffice.org Tips and Tricks: Harmonizing With MS Office, Managing Large Complex Documents - page 3
Making OOo Documents MS Office-Friendly
This part wraps up our OpenOffice.org tips and tricks series, at least for now. If you haven’t yet, make sure you check out the previous parts. In Part I we discussed adding templates, clipart, and a grammar checker to OOo. Plus we figured out how to spilt windows, to mimic the Spilt Window feature available in Microsoft to show two different views or windows of the same document. Part II discussed importing the custom dictionary and document templates of MS Office into OOo. It also discussed where to set OOo to automatically save in MS Office format. In Part III we discovered OOo’s equivalent to WordArt, called Fontwork. We also had fun drawing organizational charts and diagrams and found out how to insert page numbers. In Part IV we fumbled through the options and preferences in OOo, exported documents to PDF format and discovered tips to help when working with images. Finally, this tutorial showed you ways to make your documents more suitable for the conversion to MS Office format and introduced you to the Navigator.
