You must already have a NextCloud account otherwise you would not be able to access the control spreadsheet for the Impress Guide, nor send emails through Document Foundation Community.

The suggestions I gave you are all in LibreOffice.

To check a chapter I suggest you download the latest version of LibreOffice from the download page at The latest version is 7.5.3. However I am using 7.5.2 for macOS to create the chapters because I keep getting little problems with LO 7.5.3. However, LO 7.5.3 works OK on my Ubuntu and Windows laptops.
