Subject Re: Is there any way to convert help content to ODF or word document?

Thank you

> My question is, why do you want such document?

Because user want an independent manual(or guide book). Like this

But those books in amazon are 1,not translated 2,may be licensed 3.not
editable (we did some hack,and we need to explain what is different from
original openoffice) , 4. not correspond to newest version of OpenOffice.

So I think it is probably good to just convert help contents to an editable
document. Or is there any easiest way else to do this work?

Thank you very much and best regards.
