LO 7.6 Writer Guide published

I had no response to my call for review of Writer Guide 7.6 chapters, so I’ve published them and the full book. @olivier please note PDF and ODT of the full book are also in the folder along with chapter ODTs.
If someone wants to review any of this, feel free. The book can be updated and/or your comments can be taken into account for the next release.
I’m sure much can be improved, and I may have failed to include something or change something.

@ohallot Print edition of Writer 7.6 Guide is now available.

@ohallot Reminder: WG 7.6 ODT files need to be “cleaned” for translation.

Hello @jeanweber

The Lulu printed edition link was added to the websites.

I’m looking into the source files for “cleaning” (and exporting to HTML).

Kind regards

Hi @jeanweber

I have cleaned the files to my best and I uploaded an archive (WG76-clean.zip) with them in the WG76 folder.

Of course we are a team that stresses LibreOffice Writer capabilities and I hit some annoying bugs: 1) restart numbered lists at start of chapter must be done in Format - Paragraph, and 2) spotlight gives false positives with lists, and 3) a couple of crashes who knows why…

There was some fake lists (= Body Text + List), and “dust” in some applied styles. The fake list were corrected and the styles reapplied to blow the dust.

I also saw a few paragraphs that starts with [macOS] and [all] (chapter on printing), so I leave them to you.

(and my mouse wheel must have run 100’s of miles :slight_smile: )
