LibreOffice: Advent Tip #6

AutoText_001LibreOffice offers an AutoText feature which can be accessed from the menu Edit > AutoText, which opens a simple dialog windows. The example shown in the image on the left is the well known Lorem Ipsum pseudo Latin blurb, which can be used to mimic a document layout, but the feature offers a number of pre-defined standard strings (for instance: 1st Reminder, 2nd Reminder, etcetera), plus several Business Cards layouts, plus a number of template elements (for instance: Header Brochure, Header Newsletter, etcetera). In addition, you can import a document to create your own AutoText elements. To insert the AutoText, you can either recall the dialog window or type the shortcut for the AutoText entry, and then press F3.
