“The lazy user’s guide to Writer”

Free Software Magazine contributor Daniel Escasa writes The lazy user’s guide to Writer.

It’s a fun article in style, and in substance it takes account of a very important fact: users are lazy! But we have good reason for it. There are too many tasks to do and too little time to do them.

Escasa begins, “All hail the lazy, for they will find the most efficient way to work a computer in general, and a word processor in particular. In this article, I’ll look at three lazy writer’s tricks that can relieve you of most of the drudgery involved in creating a fairly large document in Writer.”

Escasa covers creating a title page, creating a table of contents, and changing the page numbering styles. Quick bites of useful information for Writer beginners (and helpful as a reminder to old-timers, too).

It’s a useful article, and I think the name could be expanded into a book series concept in the tradition of the “For Dummies” books. He’s sharing this article under a CC-license for others to benefit from, but I think he should keep growing until he’s got a full book to publish! (There’s no reason why that shouldn’t be CC-licensed, too.)
