In reviewing the 7.3 GS guide while preparing to work on 7.4, I found that there could be a different (better?) structure for the GS guide.
The details of my proposal are in GS74 Restructure Proposal found in the Contributor Resources folder(here).
In short, I’m proposing to:
- Combine Exporting and other advanced file management topics into a single chapter. Right now, file management information is split across 5 chapters.
- Combine Chapter 1 and a simplified, stripped down version of Chapter 2 and move the detailed LO Configuration chapter to later in the book. Chapter 1 becomes “LO Basics” and covers what most users might want to know up front vs. an exhaustive walk through all the options.
- Reorder the chapters so that Styles and Templates and Images and Graphics chapters follow the Writer and Calc chapters (so they make more sense in reading order).
Let me know what you think.
Thanks for your consideration.
