I’m starting a post / thread for noting updates needed for Writer Guide 7.5, many of which are not in the Release Notes. (Some are things that were overlooked in WG7.3; others are changes that occurred in 7.4 or 7.5.) Some of these are relevant to the Getting Started Guide and possibly other guides as well. Please feel free to add anything you know about or discover.
Also note: WG contains many references to chapters in GS, some of which have changed number and/or title. These must all be verified and amended if necessary. EDIT: Remove all references to GS chapters (numbers and titles) and just refer to GS.
Feedback and Note on Copyright page need to be updated from “mailing list” to “forum” info, if not already done.
On the Frame and Image properties dialogs (and possibly some others), the Type tab is now named Position and Size (this is from LO7.4). On the Image dialog, the Image tab is now named Rotation. Many screenshots will need replacing and instructions updated.
Manage Changes deck in Sidebar is no longer experimental (LO7.4).
Selection mode in Status bar works a bit differently now: the icon changes to indicate the mode, and a click provides the list of choices from which to choose.
Outline folding is no longer experimental (LO7.4).
Outline tracking is new in LO 7.4s.
Language Tool connection (LO 7.4) – see release notes.
Additional features in track changes – see release notes. Some cause additional action icons to appear in the Manage Changes dialog.
Additional icon (“No List”) on Bullets and Numbering toolbar.
Some tooltips on Frame toolbar have changed.
Form menu on Menu bar shows a new item in 7.4: Content Controls, with a submenu. Need a new pic and some description in the text (Chapter 18).
Start Center has a filter field and “clear docs” controls at the top; need a new screenshot and some mention (Chapter 1).
The Background tab in several dialogs (including Paragraph Style, Table Properties, TOC Index Biblio, etc) has changed “Bitmap” to “Image” - screenshots and some text need to be changed.
