Series of books on OpenSource software
After producing a book on 'how to produce and publish your own book using Scribus', I had taken up the task of writing a book on OpenOffice 4.x. Due to some complaining German speaking guys at a Linux ralley somewhere in the Netherlands, this title was quickly edited to serve LibreOffice 4.x users as well.
So now we have two titles on sale in the Dutch language:
Ik wil met OpenOffice aan het werk
Ik wil met LibreOffice aan het werk
(I want to work with...)
Soon there will be a next new title dealing with the advanced use of formulas & functions in Calc,
which is used both in OpenOffice and LibreOffice. And there's more to come!
Of course the layout will be done in Scribus version 1.4.4.
I find Scribus 1.4.4 a fine program to use in OpenSource publishing in combination with one of the major
Dutch Printing On Demand firms, Scanlaser , beit that the interface could do with some improvements.
Eagerly awaiting version 1.5 because a little bird has made some promises regarding the interface...
