Making a PDF anyone can edit

Simon Phipps has made a how-to video about making hybrid PDFs, demonstrating the feature described in his ComputerWorld UK article The Magic of Editable PDFs, which I had blogged about previously.

Printed copies of v3.4 Writer Guide now available

Writer Guide 3.4 cover

Individual chapters and the full book are available on the wiki. A printed copy can be purchased here.

Other books for v3.4 (Draw Guide, Impress Guide, Calc Guide, Math Guide) in various stages of completion are also on that wiki page. More help is always welcomed by the Documentation Team.

Writer Guide v3.4 published

The full compiled Writer Guide v3.4 has been published to the documentation wiki (ODT, PDF).

Tomorrow I’ll publish the printed version, if Lulu.com cooperates. Will post again when that’s done.

A few of the chapter files on the wiki differ in minor ways from the chapters in the full book. When I get a chance, I will be revising and replacing the chapter files to match the book.

Huge thanks to everyone on the LibreOffice Documentation Team who helped get this book done.

More user guide chapters available

More chapters of LibreOffice user guides are going up on the wiki.

The active user docs team is small but awesome. We could use a few more volunteers: people who can do good work with little supervision, once we help you get started.
