Help with LibreOffice Draw


My set up is: Windows 7==>Oracle Virtual Box==>Ubuntu. I need to use LibreOffice Draw. I need a very good online manual. I need to learn how to use the package. There is this place on the web: https://help.libreoffice.org/3.3/Dra...s_and_Segments which is actually a subdirectory. On this page one can read: "1.Open the Ellipses toolbar and click one of the Circle Pie or Ellipse Pie icons" I cannot see the Ellipses toolbar and I cannot find the icon they showed. I need some help. Thanks, - AlexBB

I just found an ellipse on a toolbar on the lower margin of the page but it is not an ellipse toolbar. Also, I don't understand how to move it to the drawing. It does not seem to want to go anywhere. Thanks.

John_W hi. Indeed my version is LibreOffice 3.5.7.2 which I installed with Ubuntu about 6 weeks ago. This version was a part of the package. It came as a surprise to me that there is a Windows version. Anyhow I still do not have an answer to my question about the documentation for LibreOffice. I doubt a newer version will change the documentation significantly. Thanks, - ALexBB

to place an ellipse on a "blank" paper
--- for the current Libreoffice 4.2.1 ----

click( l-click) on the "ellipse" icon in the bottom left of the window
then click and drag on the paper to place and change the size

there are a ton of guides you can find with Google
for the old libreoffice3 it is 99.999999999999% identical as Openoffice3
libreoffice4 is only 99% identical to what will be openoffice4

but for now the older libreoffice3 is the same as openoffice3

Have you looked at the LibreOffice Help? There's also a PDF and here's a series of tutorials.

Frankbell and others who contributed, thank you very much. It is a wealth of information.

However I have another one: Does Software Center have GCC with GFortran as well? Thanks, - AlexBB
