I like the article. I has just enough information to be useful. I've spent twenty one years setting computers up but I've never learned how to use the application software. Since I started my own business I find that I have got to learn to use an office productivity suite. OOo seems like a good one. I experimented with KOffice. I didn't like it.

So I need to learn just enough to be useful but I don't want to learn enough to replace a good secretary. Your article is just what I needed.

I looked at your web site. It seems that the instructive stuff is mixed in with a diary. That makes it difficult to read. I couldn't find any kind of table of contents on your web site.

Great article.
I am running OO 2.2.1 and I want try to use the Label Wizard for the Avery 5931. The wizard has instead of letters "user" with a 1.5 x 11 inches page. Changing format/page to letter solves the problem. Here is the question: How can I save the modify templates so the Wizard the next time comes with the correct template?. I know how to save the template, I just want to modify the wizard template. Is that possible.
