What Is OpenOffice.org Writer? > Who Is This Book For?

Who Is This Book For?

This book is for intermediate and advanced users of OpenOffice.org Writer. You may not have used this program before, but you have used another word processor (such as Microsoft Word or Corel WordPerfect) and are familiar with the basics of word processing.

Typical users include academic writers, technical writers, and other business and professional writers—anyone who produces books, research papers, proposals, or other documents requiring the use of more than the basic features. For example, you need to use styles instead of direct formatting of headings and other paragraphs, and you need to include chapter information in the footers of pages, or you want to use master documents to control a book containing many chapters, perhaps written by different people.

I have not attempted to cover all the features and functions of Writer—that would take a book several times the size of this one. Some topics are covered only briefly, leaving you to work out the details for yourself. A few major topics are not covered at all; these include macros, forms, and exchanging data with other OpenOffice.org applications.
