Getting Help

Get help for at any time from the Help menu. Depending on your selection, the depth and type of help provided varies. To get thoroughly acquainted with a topic, select Help -> Contents. The help system provides information about each of the modules of ( Writer, Calc, Impress, etc.).

If you find this information too broad or overwhelming, try the Help Agent instead, which offers help and tips as you perform different actions with Select Help -> Help Agent to enable this. If less information should be sufficient, try Tips and Extended Tips. They enable the program's tooltips — short information about the element to which the mouse is pointing. These items can easily be disabled later when you are more familiar with the program.


If you are not sure whether the features are active, open the Help menu. A checked menu item indicates that the corresponding help function is currently active.
