Hi there,

Everytime I save a file in OO Writer 3 and once done go to File - Close it closes down OO Writer so I have to re-open it. If I choose Exit it exits the entire OO suite and have to re-boot the suite to get to OO Writer again.

How can I save a file in OO Writer and once done go to a blank document in OO Writer without closing OO Writer down?

Also, is there any kind of a Word 2003 to Open Office Conversion Chart for functions?

A kind of cheat sheet where one could look at how you did something in Word but translate into how you do that same function in OO Writer?

Ex. Word 2003 to create or edit a header or footer you clcik View and choose Header/Footer - how do you do that function in OO Writer?

Thank you so much.

Use File--->New--->Text Document.

Insert-->Header or Footer

See http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation for help.

Hi thomasjk,

The problem is if I keep choosing blank document I'll have tons of files remaining open.

So, what I'd like to do is save a file in OO, close it out so I can go on to the next file without keeping the saved file(s) open and without reverting back to the OO suite screen.

What would be the best way to do that?

Thanks for the Header/Footer find.

Have you found any kind of a Word 2003 to Open Office function chart?

Thanks so much.

I don't think that there is a way to do that with out having at least one new document open.

The behaviour is: if you have one file open, closing it will close OOo. So, yes, keep one file open and you can start, save and close as many files as you want in one session.

thomasjk and floris_v,

OK, I guess that's the trick - leaving at least one file open but be able to close all the others.

I got in the habit in Word of leaving many files open and then when I'd close down the PC it would take a lot of time closing each open file.

Any idea on Word 2003 to Open Office 3 feature charts?

Otherwise, I guess I'll be back here!

Thanks so much,
