					Open Office Tutorial


Add spacing between paragraphs and tables (in current document)
In OpenOffice.org Writer, paragraph spacing is defined differently than in MS Word documents. If you have
defined spacing between two paragraphs or tables, spacing is also added in the corresponding MS Word
documents.
Specifies whether to add MS Word-compatible spacing between paragraphs and tables in OpenOffice.org
Writer text documents.




Add paragraph and table spacing at tops of pages (in current document)
Specifies whether paragraph spacing at the top of a page will also be effective at the beginning of a page or
column if the paragraph is positioned on the first page of the document. The same applies for a page break.

Use StarOffice 6.0/7 tab stop formatting
Specifies how to align text at tab stops beyond the right margin, how to handle decimal tab stops, and how to
handle tab stops close to a line break. If this check box is not selected, tab stops are handled in the same way
as in other Office applications.
In text documents created by your current version of Writer, the new tab stop handling is used by default. In
text documents created by Writer versions prior to StarOffice 8 or OpenOffice.org 2.0, the old tab stop
handling is applied.
Do not add leading (extra space) between lines of text
Specifies that additional leading (extra space) between lines of text is not added, even if the font in use
contains the additional leading attribute.
In text documents created by your current version of Writer, the additional leading is used by default. In text
documents created by Writer versions prior to StarOffice 8 or OpenOffice.org 2.0, the additional leading is
not used.

Use StarOffice 6.0/7 line spacing
If the option is off, a new process for formatting text lines with proportional line spacing will be applied. If
the option is on, the previous method of formatting of text lines with proportional line spacing will be
applied.
In text documents created by your current version of Writer and in Microsoft Word documents of recent
versions, the new process is used. In text documents created by Writer versions prior to StarOffice 8 or
OpenOffice.org 2.0, the previous process is used.

Add paragraph and table spacing at bottom of table cells
Specifies that the bottom spacing is added to a paragraph, even when it is the last paragraph in a table cell.
If the option is off, table cells will be formatted as in Writer versions prior to StarOffice 8 or OpenOffice.org
2.0. If the option is on, an alternative method of formatting table cells will be applied. The option is on by
default for new documents created with OpenOffice.org 3.2 and for documents imported from Microsoft
Word format.

Use StarOffice 6.0/7 object positioning
Specifies how to calculate the position of floating objects anchored to a character or paragraph with respect
to the top and bottom paragraph spacing.
If the option is on, the floating objects are positioned as in Writer versions prior to StarOffice 8 or
OpenOffice.org 2.0. If the option is off, the floating objects are positioned using an alternative method that is
similar to the method used by Microsoft Word.
The option will be set to off for new documents. For Writer documents created by a version prior to
OpenOffice.org 3.2 the option is on.

Use StarOffice 6.0/7 text wrapping around objects
MS Word and Writer have different approaches on wrapping text around floating screen objects. Floating
screen object are Writer frames and drawing objects, and the objects 'text box', 'graphic', 'frame', 'picture' etc.
in MS Word.
In MS Word and in current versions of Writer, page header/footer content and footnote/endnote content does
not wrap around floating screen objects. Text body content wraps around floating screen objects which are
anchored in the page header.
In Writer versions prior to StarOffice 8 or OpenOffice.org 2.0, the opposite was true.
If the option is off, which is the default setting, the new text wrapping will be applied. If the option is on, the
former text wrapping will be applied.

Consider wrapping style when positioning objects
Specifies how the complex process of positioning floating objects that are anchored to a character or
paragraph should work. In Writer versions prior to StarOffice 8 or OpenOffice.org 2.0, an iterative process
was used, while in current versions a straightforward process is used, which is similar to the same process in
Microsoft Word.
If the option is off, the old OpenOffice.org iterative process of object positioning is used. If the option is on,
the new straightforward process is used to ensure compatibility with Microsoft Word documents.

Expand word space on lines with manual line breaks in justified paragraphs
If enabled, Writer adds spacing between words, in lines that end with Shift+Enter in justified paragraphs. If
disabled, spacing between words will not be expanded to justify the lines.
This setting is on by default for .odt text documents. It will be saved and loaded with the document in the .odt
text document format. This setting cannot be saved in old .sxw text documents, so this setting is off for .sxw
text documents.

Use as Default
Click to use the current settings on this tab page as the default for further sessions with OpenOffice.org.
The factory defaults are set as follows. Enabled are the following options, while all other options are
disabled:
    1. Add spacing between paragraphs and tables (in current document)
    2. Add paragraph and table spacing at tops of pages (in current document)
    3. Add paragraph and table spacing at bottom of table cells
    4. Expand word space on lines with manual line breaks in justified paragraphs
