This is Appendix A of the OpenOffice.org 3 Impress Guide, produced by the
OOoAuthors group. A PDF of this chapter is available from
Documentation at OpenOffice.org.
You can use OpenOffice.org (OOo) without requiring a pointing device, such as a mouse or trackball, by using its built-in keyboard shortcuts. Tasks as varied and complex as docking and un-docking toolbars and windows, or changing the size or position of objects can all be accomplished with only a keyboard. Although OOo has its own extensive set of keyboard shortcuts, each component provides others which are specific to its work.
For help with OOo's keyboard shortcuts, or using OOo with a keyboard only, search the OOo Help using the “shortcut" or “accessibility" keywords.
In addition to using the built-in keyboard shortcuts (listed in this Appendix), you can also define your own. You can assign shortcuts to standard Impress functions or your own macros and save them for use with Impress only, or with the entire OpenOffice.org suite.
To adapt shortcut keys to your needs, use the Customize dialog as described in this section and in “Customizing keyboard shortcuts" in
Chapter 11 (Setting Up and Customizing Impress).
