[Solved] Short Story templates

Postby The Writer » Tue Jul 03, 2018 4:09 am

My name is The Writer, and I have Open Office 4.5.1, and I was wondering why I can't get templates for writing short stories? I have templates for writing books but, I am struggling to get templates for short stories. If someone can please help me out with this, I would it. Thanks.

and I have Open Office 4.5.1,

There is not Apache OpenOffice 4.5.1 version today. Maybe your office suite is LibreOffice, or you have 4.1.5 version of the AOO.

I think, you must make them. There are template downloading pages, where there are templates created by the user's community. You can search for the desired template, but...

https://extensions.libreoffice.org/templates

I appreciated the links. I found the templates and they are called book manuscripts. Thanks for the help. I have also book marked a guy's example of a short story format, and I remember his last name being Shun. I have been trying to make some good short stories and I have some pretty good ideas and now that I have the template, I can write them.

See Chapter 10 - Working with Templates in the manual.

As a new poster you will find much useful information in the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials, the up to date Writer guide and the Writer Manual. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

Press F1 to access the Help screen and search for your problem

The chapter headings in the manual are:

1 - Introducing Writer
2 - Setting up Writer
3 - Working with Text
4 - Formatting Pages
5 - Printing, Exporting, Faxing and E-Mailing
6 - Introduction to Styles
7 - Working with Styles
8 - Working with Graphics
9 - Working with Tables
10 - Working with Templates
11 - Using Mail Merge
12 - Tables of Contents, Indexes and Bibliographies
13 - Working with Master Documents
14 - Working with Fields
15 - Using Forms in Writer
16 - Customizing Writer – Keyboard shortcuts.

When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.

Showing that a problem has been solved helps others searching so, if your problem is now solved, please view your first post in this thread and click the Edit button (top right in the post) and add [Solved] in front of the subject.
AOO 4.1.5, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
