Question about ODFAuthors

How exactly do I go about editing a file that is on ODFAuthors?  Do I
simply download the file, edit it, and then re-upload my edited file to the
site?

Thanks for the help, everyone.  I'm sorry if there is already an answer to
this, but I cannot find it.

Regards,
Jacob D.

OK - please ping if anything is unclear.

In CC a little updated version - I hope that is not too disruptive.
Added some additional info on the second page - age for target audience
for example. And captions with the images.

Cheers,
Cor

Suggestion for next writer guide (pattern field control)

Hello all,
While translating the writer guide, I met the form controls reference 
table (page 427 - writer guide 4.2 pdf); in the "more controls toolbar" 
section, the "pattern field" control should be better described in my 
opinion.

I found this page that offers info that could be somehow added to the 
table (or to other pages of the book):

https://help.libreoffice.org/3.3/Basic/General#Edit_mask

Without these info the control is not usable at all.
Thanks.
Namastè all :)

It's not yet there. Will ask Kees to add it there.
But I've both the odt and the pdf attached.

Is that fine for you to proceed?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Base documentation?

Work on documentation (in English) for Base seems to have stopped,
unless I've missed it. I see a lot of v4.2 drafts of Base Handbook
chapters on ODFAuthors, and a few reviews, mostly from October 2014,
and the tasks list on the wiki shows several chapters checked out for
work (which may or may not have been completed).

Can the Base enthusiasts bring me up to date? (I know there is a more
recent version of the Handbook in German.) Is it worth my time to go
through the existing English drafts and see if they are publishable? I
know there was talk about combining the existing "Base Guide" chapters
with the translated "Base Handbook" into a document to be renamed
"Base Guide", but I haven't seen any evidence of this occurring.

Thanks! --Jean

Is anyone working on other v4.4 books?

I'm back from six weeks of travel in North America and recovered from
jet lag, and I'm wondering if anyone's been doing anything in my
absence. Really, I do NOT want to be the main driving force and mentor
(aka "leader") for this project, but everyone else seems either too
busy or not at all interested in taking up the role. So I'll just poke
the ant heap now and then and see what happens.

PeterS has been working on updating and improving the Calc Guide, but
I am not aware of anyone doing anything else. Please tell me I'm
wrong!

We seem to have people available to copyedit, proofread, and perhaps
review, but not enough to research and write updated material. I'm no
longer doing much except final checking and publishing chapters and
books and doing some of the associated publicity... plus the
occasional bit of coordination, though not much.

We've cut back on expectations for how often we produce books, but
they still tend to not be completed before the next release of the
software. (Version 4.4 was released at the end of January; version 4.5
is due out the end of July.)

Math 4.4 Guide published

After some minor amendment (correcting minor errors in text and
incorrect styles) I've published the Math 4.4 Guide. This book has
been revised and rewritten by Peter Schofield, who has IMO improved it
greatly. Thanks, Peter!

It's available in ODT and PDF here:
http://www.odfauthors.org/libreoffice/english/math-guide/published
and here:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Publications

Soon to be linked from https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/documentation/
Printed copies to come; I'll let you know. Blog post will be written eventually.

Also, I will copy my changes into the Getting Started with Math
chapter Peter provided for the GS book.

Introduction

Hi,
My name is John Linton and I would like to contribute to the LibreOffice
Documentation Team. I've been a LibreOffice user for the past 5 years when
I made the switch to the Linux OS. I solely used LibreOffice through grad
school and in the business I started.

My background in mainly in business and finance. I have been a heavy user
of LibreOffice Writer, Calc, and Impress. I have minimal experience with
Draw, Math, and Base.

I'd love to be involved in writing, editing, or wherever help is needed. I
believe I need a ODFAuthors account.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
John

At this stage, I'm more interested in fonts that look good.

James Kaas (Code2000 creator) paved the way with low-cost/gratis
Pan-unicode fonts. I think most of the glyphs are "ugly", but it was all
that available then. And for some sub-sets, it still is the only thing
that is available.

I'd like to think that typographers are now focusing on "pretty".

Re: Fonts, Font Substitutions, Languages, Graphite, Justification, etc.

Hi again Jonathon:

I hadn't heard the term "pan-unicode" that you used, so I looked around a
bit and found the following site:
http://www.fontspace.com/category/pan-unicode

It includes a font named Quivira that appears to be free and also appears to
have a nice set of Thai (and more glyphs than most fonts I've looked at -
which could be good or bad depending on what you're using it for of course).

I'll take a closer look, but from what I've seen so far, I suspect it should
be added to the list I gave you, and appears to support a large number of
other languages as well...

P.S. Should any part of this thread be posted to the L10N segment as well?
If so, who would be responsible for doing that? For TomD: I posted a link to
the earlier thread of mine that you couldn't locate in my last reply to
Jonathon just in case you're interested.
