:: Overview

    Overwhelmed by formatting choices in OpenOffice Writer?  Continually 
fiddling with formatting that never comes up quite right for your 
present document?  Help is on the way!

    A diagrammatic overview of the OO style system is the first step.  
Why are they needed?  Where do they reside?  How do they interact?  
Should the defaults be changed?  How do templates come in?  What are 
the "Gotchas"?
    Next, a different approach to style management deftly cuts the 
styles and templates down to an easy-to-use few.  Once you create your 
small set of custom styles and templates you will rarely revisit 
formatting details again.  (Yes, the scheme evolved from roff macros.)
