    Open Office Help


    Hello,

    I was wondering how do I convert an OpenOfficeWriter format into other formats, like a man page, txt, rtf, or doc, without having to have those separate files.

    What I am trying to do is create documentation for a program that has many uses. This can be used on may different operating systems. So I am trying to find a "master" source that I might be able to create all other documents with. So I will only have to keep up one document and just re-make the others.

    Any Ideas? Are there any other programs I might want to use?

    Thanks
    JR

    Well, of the formats you mentioned the only one I can say would be relatively "universal" is plain text. You can save a document in OpenOffice as anything you like really, just use the "Save As.." option. Of course, going from SXW or DOC to plain text will make you lose your formatting...

    ^I've never seen a word processor that can't read/write RTF.

    You can also use XHTML (see sig)
