Subject Documentation for OO4
Date Sun, 23 Feb 2014 03:23:03 GMT
Dear Sirs,

I was doing some research about how to change document properties after
upgrading to Open Office 4 and came across your post for people who want to
help with documentation.

Considering that I have searched for three hours but have not found any
information about how to replace the document properties  (file >
properties > general {and other tabs}) from that of the properties in the
template, I would like to be sure that it gets included in the
documentation to be published.

When using a template, the author's name of the template is in the
properties of the template.  When you use that template, the template's
author is erroneously displayed at the author of the document.  As it is, I
can not find any way to change the name of the author.

Also, I am only able to change some of the information in the properties
tabs, and some I have changed by opening it in Calibre and making the
metadata changes there, then re-opening it in Open Office 4.  Even so I
can't change the created by, created date, nor remove the template name
from the file.

So, when I give the file to someone else, the wrong properties are
displayed which gives me great problems.  Having someone else's name appear
on the document with wrong time and dates causes people to be concerned
about the security of my work.

This was not an issue with Microsoft Word. :(  They are pressuring me to
purchase Word.

Thank you for considering my submission.

Cindy Livengood
