* Presents: Olivier, Paul Figueiredo
Tasks below assigned to Amanda and Dave.
Always use "Track changes" with proper "user data" filled in Tools >
Options > LibreOffice > User data
Use Styles !!!!
Bold characters for Menu Path should be changed to character style
"LOMenuPath". e.g. Tools > Options > LibreOffice
References fo other chapters should use character style
"LOEmphasis". e.g. See Chapter 14 Customizing LibreOffice
A figure with caption is embedded in a Frame, which must be anchored
"As character". The paragraph holding the character must be "Figure" (I
hope this does not confuses you guys)
To remove a misuse of bold characters, select the bold text and hit
Ctrl+M. This resets the direct formatting (Bold) to the underlying
character style of the paragraph style.
