Question Need help with OpenOffice


I am trying to find some help with OpenOffice. For some reason I either am missing all support pages for it or there just aren't any outhere.

Here is what I'm want to do. I would like to change the page borders perminately. I can change the borders but they don't stay that way so I have to reapply my changes each time I start OpenOffice.

Can some one let me know how I can make this change permanetly and or lead me to some site that can provide this type of help.

ThxIA

You're just missing them.

I'm not quite sure whether this would appeal
to you, but I didn't put too much effort into
that work-around :)

1.) Open a new document
2.) Set your margins
3.) Save the document as a template
in ~/<your_office_dir>/user/template/default.stw
and create new files from that one in the future :)

Cheers,
Tink

Again thanks

With the document you have designed as your template, select:

File->Templates->Save

In the dialog, enter a name in the "New template" field. This will put your new template in the "Default" category. Click OK.

Now select File->Templates->Organize. In the Template Management dialog, double-click on "Default" in the left pane. This opens the list of templates in the default category. Right-click your previously saved template and select "Set as default template". Click Close. Writer will now start up with your template and its settings as the default.

Regards, Geoff.
