An introduction to Open Office, part 6


The drawing application


Included in the Open Office suite you will also find a drawing application, nothing as fancy as Photoshop, but it serve its purpose very well and is indeed a well developed software. As I said in previous articles, the user interface is somewhat the same as the writer and the spreadsheet application. There are, of course, som unique functions in the drawer as well, and you might got a few surprises coming your way. :)

Above you see the user interface of the Open Office drawer, as you see there are familiar setup with toolbars on top, and a "application-unique" toolbar to the left. You do however have additional toolbars, which you can open when the application is running.

Above, your standard toolbars, I'm sure you recognize these by now, and you know the basic functions. If you however decide to view additional toolbars the will be placed below the "font" bar.

The left side toolbar, you will find your basic functions for drawing editing in this bar. Note the buttons have different functions. Hover your mouse pointer above the button to read more about what each button does. If you press a button and hold it, you will get a sub-menu, with extended choices, pretty nifty.

Highlighted the drop down menu where you easy can access the latest documents which have been opened, speeds up the work process doesn't it? :)

In the top menu, if you got View > Toolbar >, you will see a few more toolbars you can open and use as you work. However, I will recommend you get to know the basic functions of the application before exploring further into the functions of the Open Office Drawer application.
