Closing a Document

To close a document, choose File → Close or click the Close icon on the document window. In Windows, this icon looks like the X in the red box shown in Figure 20.

If more than one AOO window is open, each window looks like the sample shown on the left in Figure 20. Closing this window leaves the other AOO windows open.

If only one AOO window is open, it looks like the sample shown on the right in Figure 20. Notice the small black X below the larger X in the red box. Clicking the small black X closes the document but leaves AOO open. Clicking the larger X closes AOO completely.
