Description hessonryan 2012-11-13 16:04:16 UTC
Currently on the Libre Office website there are a PDF files for each program that contain all the necessary information regarding the software e.g. how to create a file etc. In my opinion as a new user of Libre Office, this file seems to be to big and it can take a long time to search for the help needed to complete something within the software.

My suggestion is to separate the PDF files into small easier to read files with specific help e.g. working with tables, so new users can simply click on the relevant file and download it. As the user progresses and understands how the software program works they can then purchase the full book or download the PDF.

Sorry for not seeing those documents. Is there any way they can be put on to the main website as well ?

I can confirm that. If you go to libreoffice.org you can click on 'get-help' and then on 'documentation'. I can't imagine this is not an appropriate place/hard-to-find place this documentation. https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/documentation/

Also I think there is a good link to the link posted in Comment 1:

"Completed LibreOffice user guides are listed below. Click a link to download a free PDF or ODT copy. Individual chapters of all books, both completed and in progress, are available from this page on the wiki (<- link to http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Publications)."

I hope you can agree I close this bug as 'RESOLVED NOTABUG'? If not, please feel free to REOPEN and provide other concernings regarding this topic.

kind regards,
