Working with WordPerfect8 i've been trying to adjust to OO but it's not easy.

One of things i did most was to work with a document to be printed in booklet format (thus Landscape 8.5 x 11) with two columns which i just can't seem to figure out how to to with OO. I can make two columns but the page numbering doesn't recognize them both. Follow me?

Page numbering is a page-level attribute, while columns are content-level. Two columns on a page are still one page.

To create a booklet you'll need to actually change the page size on the page style(s) you're using, to half the printed page (assuming you're printing 2-up on a sheet). Then follow the instructions in the Help file for Printing a Brochure. You can locate the topic by searching for "booklet".

Foxcole,

This is great!
Now if i could only find a way to view pages 1 and 2 in the same window...

A bit of topic...
Correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe that OO inserts much fewer codes into text compared to WordPerfect and Word.

I wasn't expecting such a prompt response!
Thank you so much!

-Daniel

Issue 1598 - Display multiple pages beside each other while editing. You should subscribe and vote for it (up to 2 votes per issue).

Thanks to add '[Solved]' in your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

Thanks for the encouragement AndrewZ!

Have heard so many good things coming up with OpenOffice.
In fact, with the available extensions it just keeps on getting better all the time!

Will keep on working with 2.4 for now.
