does not have a similar concept to the Navigator and, in the authors opinion, it is such a useful tool it is worth taking the time to learn more about it.

To launch the Navigator (Figure 2), press F5 or click the Navigator icon on the Standard toolbar.


To get a detailed description of what each of the buttons does, press Shift+F1 and hover the cursor over the buttons.

The Headings at the top of the list box in the Navigator are the closest equivalent to Word’s Outline View.

With the List Box on there is a drop-down list box at the bottom of the Navigator. With this list box it is possible to select any of the open Writer documents so that their contents are available for dragging and dropping. What happens when the selection is dropped is determined by the drag mode specified by the Drag Mode button. Click the arrow next to the Drag Mode button to see the available options (Insert as: Hyperlink, Link, or Copy).

When viewing a master document, the Navigator is quite different. For more details, see the Chapter 13, “Working with Master Documents” in the Writer Guide.


Graphics, indexes, OLE objects, and references cannot be dragged and dropped when in the Insert as link or Insert as Copy modes.
