I've had a little more time due to publisher-related stuff, so I'm still refining the book chapters. Here are two, one from Calc and one from Impress. Feel free to read them, use them, or comment on them. As always, when you download the chapters you agree to not republish it under your own name, not to reuse the content in another context, to credit the book/site if you link to it, not to use the pages in a bizarre sculpture for your MFA final project, etc. ;>
The book itself will be out "soon", I promise, from Amazon and other fine booksellers.
I started slow and easy with the calculations chapter, based on what I've seen in some classes. Anyone who already knows how to write a calculation can skip that section.
I'm also looking for a few additional cool formulas to teach in the chapter. I've got some ideas from www.openofficetips.com but would like input, as well.
Regarding master pages, they're being kind of twitchy in the current release. I have found them to be more reliable in the 2.0 version and am hoping for a return to reliability in 2.0.3.
If you have any feedback or suggestions for other topics, please feel free to post.
