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.
OOo has a general set of keyboard shortcuts, available in all components, and a component-specific set directly related to the work of that component. This appendix lists set for Writer. For general shortcuts, see Documentation/OOo3_User_Guides/Getting Started/Keyboard Shortcuts|Appendix A]] of the Getting Started guide.
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 On-line Help using the “shortcut” or “accessibility” keywords.
In addition to using the built-in keyboard shortcuts listed in this Appendix, you can define your own. See
Chapter 17 (Customizing Writer) for instructions.
