OO-Writer Word Processing

  • Form-letter management to send letters to addresses in a database. Automate chores and make complex things easy, it's the way we've tried to design OpenOffice.org and we think it shows through here.

  • Compare changes and work collaboratively using the Versions system. If you need to work on a document together, but can't be at the same computer then OpenOffice.org's powerful 'Versioning' will come in handy. It lets you see what's changed, who's changed it and accept or reject the changes either individually or with a powerful series of filters. Currently versioning information doesn't export perfectly to some other formats.

  • Direct connection with external email software to seamlessly send your documents worldwide. Cut down on the number of clicks and get your work into the hands of the people who need it.

  • AutoCorrect word completion speeds up your writing in a non-obtrusive and powerful way. As you're typing it makes its best guess at what you mean to say. You can accept it by pressing enter or just keep on typing to ignore. If you make a mistake at any time just press Ctrl+Z for a quick and simple undo. Now I love this but I understand that these AutoCorrect features can drive some people up the wall. So there's a flexible menu where you can choose exactly what you want on or off. You won't find AutoCorrect word completion anywhere else, it's just another optional feature that makes OpenOffice.org unique.

  • Indexing functions make moving around inside a document easy. A simple bibliography database makes it easy to store sources for essays.

  • Sophisticated layout manager, with extensive Desktop Publishing (DTP) functionality that allows you to display everything you want simply and clearly.
