Microsoft Office to OpenOffice Migration Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page


menus are similar to MSO’s, but some commands are in different locations. For example, OOo considers page layout a format issue, so it is found in the Format menu (Format > Page) instead of in the File menu. In addition, OOo includes some features that MSO does not (for example, built-in Export to PDF).

For information on how to customize menus (including adding and removing items), see Chapter 8, “Customizing” in this guide.

Personalized menus

OOo does not have personalized menus. This feature in MSO reorganizes the menus so that your most frequently used options are displayed first and little-used options are removed from the list.

In OOo some menu items may be relevant to the current cursor location but are inactive and grayed-out. For example, the sort command (Tools > Sort) is not available when nothing is selected. By default these menu items are not displayed. To make them visible, use Tools > Options > > View > Show inactive menu items.
