In addition, OOo Writer can export to BibTeX (.bib), LaTeX 2e (.tex) and
MediaWiki (.txt). OOo Draw and OOo Impress can export to
Macromedia Flash (.swf).
To export to one of these formats, choose File > Export. On the Export
dialog, specify a file name for the exported document, then select the
required format in the
list and click the Export button.
OOo provides several ways to quickly and easily send documents as an
e-mail attachment in one of three formats: OpenDocument (OOo’s
default format), Microsoft Office formats, or PDF.
To send the current document in OpenDocument format:
1) Choose File > Send > Document as E-mail. OpenOffice.org
opens the e-mail program specified in Tools > Options >
Internet > E-mail. The document is attached.
2) In your e-mail program, enter the recipient, subject and any text
you want to add, then send the e-mail.
File > Send > E-mail as OpenDocument Text (or Spreadsheet or
Presentation) has the same effect.
If you choose E-mail as Microsoft [Word, Excel, or Powerpoint],
OOo first creates a file in one of those formats and then opens your e-
mail program with the file attached.
Similarly, if you choose E-mail as PDF, OOo first creates a PDF using
your default PDF settings (as when using the Export Directly as PDF
toolbar button) and then opens your email program with the .PDF file
E-mailing a document to several recipients
To e-mail a document to several recipients, you can use the features in
your e-mail program or you can use OOo’s mail merge facilities to
extract email addresses from an address book.
You can use OOo’s mail merge to send e-mail in two ways:
Use the Mail Merge Wizard to create the document and send it.
See Chapter 11 (Using Mail Merge) of the
Create the document in Writer without using the Wizard, then use
the Wizard to send it. This method is described here.
