Design Using Writer

  • Andy Channelle


We’ve looked at the basics of Writer document creation, but the application is capable of so much more (see Figure 2-1). In fact, you have a set of design and layout tools at your disposal that, just a few years ago, would have beat a thousand dollar professional publishing package. In this chapter, we’re concentrating more on bringing text and imagery together to create something much more stylish than a few blocks of text. And this is perfect preparation for the next chapter where we’ll draw together the whole Writer toolset to create a newsletter with columns, graphics, colors, and photographs.

Writer is capable of much more than simple letters. In some areas, it even rivals dedicated desktop publishing packages.
