In MS Word when you can edit whilst in print preview mode. I used that all the time.

Any idea how to do that in Open Office?

Thanks

Useful link thanks.

But I guess it can't be done. Too bad. Wonder if my donation will get them to add it in the next release.. ;)

You can't in Word either, unless you meant Print Layout instead of Print Preview.

Ok I'm still using Word 2002 they must have added that in 2003 - frankly I wont be upgrading as I'm tending to use Open Office more and more.

Hi d.m Appreciate the change. However, I found that Open Office did not like graphics contained in documents prepared with Word. Could not get them to open properly and we use graphics a lot. :cool:

Word 2002 supports it - you need to deselect the "magnifier" icon in print preview to enable it.

Thanks for that - I didn't know. Regardless, why would you bother, and it still doesn't change my mind about contributing more dosh to the Gates Foundation.
