is a great website to use when you need
templates for just about anything from CD case labels
to newsletters to invoices or even legal pleadings.
In addition, there are at least 50 templates for use
with OpenOffice.org Impress, the application compatible
with Microsoft PowerPoint. OO Extras has language-specific
files for Czech, English, French, German and Italian,
as well as a few random items in other languages such
as a Norwegian invoice template and a Spanish template
for a European CV. The templates can be especially
helpful when the setup is done in an OO.o program
that you're not proficient in, but can use when someone
else has done the basic work. For example, I recently
created a set of marketing postcards using the “Basic
Greeting Card” template for OpenOffice.org Draw, a
program that I normally never use. The template has
the page already quartered with placeholders for graphics
and text, so it's easy to customize it even without
spending a lot of time learning Draw.
ran an interesting article by Russian linguist Dmitri
Popov on “Creating an Invoicing System with
OpenOffice.org Calc.” The article is extremely detailed,
including screen shots, and goes step-by-step through
the process of creating not only the data source
and template for your invoices, but also an invoice
management system to tell you if invoices have been
sent, paid, or neither. The system looks easy to
set up and much more dependable than retyping the
client's information on every invoice and relying
on your memory to tell you who paid and who didn't.
Popov is also the author of Hands
on Open Source a “practical introduction to
some of the best open-source applications available”
for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. The book is available
from Lulu, the print-on-demand service profiled
Source Update Issue 7.
