Documentation Community Releases Writer Guide 5.4

Internet, January 29th, 2018. The LibreOffice documentation community is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Writer Guide 5.4, with all innovations and enhancements of LibreOffice 5.4. The guide is an in-depth reorganization and revision of the Writer Guide 4.2. The work was lead by Jean Hollis Weber, with collaboration from Cathy Crumbley and Bruce Byfield.

The book is targeted to end users, who look for advanced techniques for contents production, maintainability and update of text documents, unleashing the full power of a leading edge, solid word processor.

“The update of the Writer Guide took a great amount of effort because of the reorganization and rewriting we did, along with the number of new features and innovations in Writer 5.4 compared to version 4.2. The more we leave the gap open, the more work we have to update,” said Jean, leader of the Writer Guide team. “I hope we can update the book to version 6 in a shorter time.”

The new guide can be downloaded in PDF or ODT formats from the LibreOffice documentation website at
