Re: Account...

Hello Tom,

Although it is a late reply, the truth has its merits (if that is an 
English idiom?)

The Dutch speaking community uses ODFAuthors site to publish their 
translations and is involved both in documentation and in-built Help.

Best regards

Leo

LibO in a Multi-Lingual Environment

All:

A couple of days ago I found my source copy of  version 0.6 of _OOo in a
Multi-Lingual Environment_ last night, in cleaning up files on my hard
drive. (This is from December 2004, and is for OOo 1.1.3-ZA.)

How fruitful would it be, to update it for LibO 4.x?

In spending roughly half an hour looking at what was described in that
document, my guess is that I'll be spending ten to fifteen hours trying
to determine the optimum workaround for the current version of LibO,
_if_ a workaround is possible.  I noted that several things that were
relied of OOo 1.1.3-ZA are not present in LibO 4.0.

Have you raised this as a bug in order to get it looked at? If you have 
not, I am happy to raise a report.
Let me know please.

"Getting Started with Base"

Hello friends.
The purpose of this note is to provide some feedback on the above 
document - largely negative, I'm afraid.
First, let me outline my own background.  Retired IT consultant - I 
remember working with punch cards.   My more recent experience has been 
with MS Access and  more particularly, FileMaker Pro.
I'm far from being an Access expert; in particular, my knowledge of SQL 
is rather sketchy.  Filemaker does not use SQL.

Having decided to use LibreOffice for word processing, I decided to 
learn LibreOffice Base.  Looking for a new experience, I decided to go 
through the Getting Started document rather than trying to design a DB 
first.  I have now reverted to my normal mode.

Compliments.
Sections 1 and 2 (Tables and Forms) are excellent.  Naturally, I am 
familiar with the concepts covered but still I thought the general 
explanations were quite good.  (It's always easy to complain about 
dropping short of perfection so I've restrained my pickiness. However, 
modifying field names at this stage is bad enough but making changes 
which remove the purpose of the field are just plain stupid.)

Criticisms.
Section 3 (Queries) was, initially, a bit of a struggle for me. 
Suddenly, field names, table names and query names have new names! I 
managed to decipher what was now meant but I wonder how a totally 
inexperienced body would get on.  Setting up the first query sort of 
makes sense.  The main query sort of makes sense.  However, in general, 
this section is one of the worst introductory explanations of anything 
that I've ever seen.  Up to this point, I was happy to wear the really

EasyHack - Documentation/User Manual for New Features

Hi All,

There are a few new features that have no documentation that we can find
(ie no help and/or user manual). We have a meta bug opened:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80430

If you are interested in writing the documentation on any of those
please email me or the documentation list and we'll help get you started.

Thanks!

Best,
Joel

Getting Started with LO 4.2

I have compiled the Getting Started with LO 4.2 book and put the ODT
and PDF on the wiki and on ODFAuthors.

I will replace some of the ODT files after the code has been cleaned.

Printed edition coming soon. Links to all soon on the LO website.

Feel free, and encouraged, to find and report errors in the book.
