Question about your user manual

Douglas Cox
I pulled down the user manual for the program. I am trying to figure out why is it so damn hard to copy and paste from online items to your word program. Upon looking through your user manual I figured out why, it is because in the index of this user manual you cannot even keep the same context to what you should be defining. I refer you to https://www.openoffice.org/documentation/manuals/OOo2.x/user_guide2_draft.pdf page 465 or 499 in the pull down this is what you have in your user manual index:
cats
....................................................................................
care
.................................................................................
feeding
................................................................
121
long haired
.....................................................................
Maine Coon
........................................................

Persian
................................................................

Long haired
......................................................................
OpenOffice.org User Guide for 2.x465Index
Himalayan

................................................................

semi long haired
..............................................................
Maine Coon
........................................................

Norwegian Forest
...............................................

shorthaired
......................................................................
Abyssinian
..........................................................
121
American Shorthair
....................................
120, 1
21
Bengal
.................................................................
121

I cannot even find a search area to put in where to find copy and paste as your user manual is more confusing and disorganized as any manual I have ever seen, and I developed many manuals for the Army. But the worst is that when I go to those pages it is not about the cats it is a typing example. I still cannot find out why it is so hard to copy and paste things to your word program. Thanks.

No, you downloaded a 2005 edition of the user guide for version 2 of the
original software called OpenOffice.org, before it became Apache OpenOffice.

> I am trying to figure out why is it so damn hard to copy and paste from online items to your word program.

When you say "/word program/", you most likely mean the "/Writer/" word
processing component of the software.

> Upon looking through your user manual I figured out why, it is because in the index of this user manual you cannot even keep the same context to what you should be defining.

No, it is because you were reading a version 2.0 user guide which did
not relate to the current (4.1.5) version of the software.

You downloaded a PDF file, so your PDF reader software will provide this
search facility.

You haven't indicated what difficulty you were experiencing with copy
and paste, or what "/things/" you are copying from and how you are
pasting them into Writer.

> Thanks. Douglas Cox

If you would care to write back to this mailing list with details of:

  * Which version of the software you are using.
  * What you are trying to copy from (eg. a web page, another type of
    document, etc.)
      o If possible, provide a link to the source to be copied from.
  * How you are trying to paste the clipboard content into Writer (eg.
    Ctrl+V key combination, menu "/Edit -> Paste Special.../", etc.)
  * What you expect the copy - paste result to be.

Armed with this information, I am sure one of the subscribers to this
mailing list will volunteer to provide some pointers to a possible
solution to your issue.

Re: Question about your user manual

Douglas Cox
 I appreciate the response. I pulled the manual down from the Brother web site so if there is another then I am not sure why this was the only manual to pull down. The problem I have is if I copy a segment from a web site and then try to paste into your writer program it will not let me paste the information unless I try many times picking various spots in the copy part. It is like I have to keep going back and right clicking copy and then go back to the writer program and try to paste and it will not let me until some random try and then I can paste it. I do not understand why it is so hard to copy and paste. I know it is capable of doing the task, but I do not understand why it is so hard to make it possible to do this. I am just trying to figure out why or what I am doing wrong that this has to be so difficult of a task to do. Thank you.

Re: Question about your user manual

I have the same problem with some web browsers.  Try highlighting the stuff you withs to copy and the use control - c (ctl-C) to copy and the in the document you with to insert it into : position the cursor where you want to insert the stuff and hit CTL-V to paste it.  These are old unix hotkeys but they still work on Mac And windows as well as linux.

On a Mac, use Cmd-C and Cmd-V.  However, on Mac [not sure about other environments] you might need to use Cmd-Shift-V and select unformatted text so that the website formatting isn’t dumped into your page.
