What is Writer?

Writer is the word processor component of OpenOffice.org (OOo). In addition to the usual features of a word processor (spell checking, thesaurus, hyphenation, autocorrect, find and replace, automatic generation of tables of contents and indexes, mail merge and others), Writer provides these important features:

  • Templates and styles (see Chapter 3)
  • Page layout methods, including frames, columns, and tables
  • Embedding or linking of graphics, spreadsheets, and other objects
  • Built-in drawing tools
  • Master documents—to group a collection of documents into a single document
  • Change tracking during revisions
  • Database integration, including a bibliography database
  • Export to PDF, including bookmarks (see Chapter 10)
  • And many more

These features are covered in detail in the Writer Guide.
