9. A Free Office Suite > 9.2. Writer Basics

Writer Basics

In most ways, you’ll find that Writer operates a lot like Microsoft Word. It has many of the same features; they’re just in different places. This section will familiarize you with the basics of Writer.

You can launch Writer by clicking K Menu Use office tools Create a text document. Be prepared for a wait—Writer takes a long time to open not only when it’s launched from a live CD, but it takes about 10 seconds even when it is installed to your hard drive. Happily, though, load times are improving with each new release.

When Writer comes up, you’ll see a window that looks a lot like Word: menus along the top, icon bar just below that, and a large space just waiting for you to start typing.
