Opening an existing document

Here is one way to open an existing document in Writer:

  1. Click File > Open (or press Control+O).

  2. In the file chooser, you can reduce the list of files by selecting the type of file you are looking for. If you choose Text documents as the file type, you will only see documents Writer understands.

  3. Select the file you want, and then click Open.


This method opens Word (.doc) files as well as OOo files and other formats.

You can also open an existing OOo Writer document using the same methods you would use to open any document in your operating system.
