I am having trouble creating a OOo Writer Master Document from an existing Word document (college catalog). Instructions (online) are murky to me and third-party book isn't much better. Any suggestions are welcome.

Ciao!

It would be helpful if you could provide a more detailed description. Creating a master from an existing document is rather straightforward: Save you .doc file as .odt, and then choose File > Send > Create Master Document. What seems to be the problem?

Kind regards,
Dmitri

If this chapter in the Writer Guide doesn't help, please let me know what needs to be included to make it clearer. We want to improve the documentation! http://documentation.openoffice.org/manuals/oooauthors2/0213WG-WorkingWithMasterDocuments.pdf

Let me try the welcome suggestions once again. I think it is the "navigator" feature that is tripping me up.

I will update all on my progress.
