You can create a new, blank document in OOo in several ways.
When OOo is open but no document is open (for example if you close all the open documents but leave the program running), a Welcome screen is shown. Click one of the icons to open a new document of that type, or click the Templates icon to start a new document using a template.
You can also start a new document in one of the following ways. If a document is already open in OOo, the new document opens in a new window.
- Use File > New and choose the type of document.
- Use the arrow next to the New button on the main toolbar. A menu of choices drops down; select the type of document to be created.
- Press Control+N on the keyboard.
- Use File > Wizards for some types of documents.
