Designing with LibreOffice is not the usual death march through the menu and standard tasks. Instead, the book takes two fresh approaches to the world’s most popular free office suite. First,... More > it explains the importance of using styles and templates in order to use LibreOffice with the most convenience and the least effort. By taking advantage of styles and templates, you can concentrate on self-expression, rather than format. Later, as you edit, you can make changes more quickly and with more precision. Second, it explains the basics of modern design and how to apply them in LibreOffice, expanding on the open secret that LibreOffice is as much a desktop publishing application as an office suite. It explains and illustrates the possible choices as you design, as well as the pros, cons, and considerations behind each choice — and, in some cases, what you should avoid altogether.< Less
