Looking for a list of the commands available for OpenOffice Writer


Hi

I am looking for a list of the commands available for OpenOffice Writer.
I have already found one at:
http://framework.openoffice.org/file...ds_11beta.html
if anybody is interrested. The only problem is that their is no explanation of the commands, so I don't understand it much.

Does anybody know where I could find a list of the commands with explanations?

Thanks a lot for your help

I haven't got OoO installed right now, but I think I saw a lot of stuff in the help section, right in the program. Have you looked there yet?

I have already looked in the help section but I actually didn't find anything.

Maybe it is because I am working on a Windows machine now.

The problem is that I need to be able to use OO on a UNIX machine using scripts (so using command lines).

Hi

Thanks a lot for your help but I haven't found what I am really looking for.

I am actually trying to concatenate ".doc" files and to automatically modify the styles (for example transform all the "Title1" in "Title2").

For example I would like to concatenate the 2 following files...

(FILE1)
Title1
Title2
Text
Title2
Text
Title1
Text

(FILE2)
Title1
Text
Title1
Title2
Text
Title2
Text

... into 1 file:

Title1 (A title corresponding to FILE1)
(beginning of FILE1 modified)
Title2
Title3
Text
Title3
Text
Title2
Text
(end of FILE1 modified)
Title1 (A title corresponding to FILE2)
(beginning of FILE2 modified)
Title2
Text
Title2
Title3
Text
Title3
Text
(end of FILE2 modified)

Do you understand what I am trying to do?
Do you think it is possible?
Do you know commands which allow modifying an OO file without using the GUI?
