Introduction
You can use OpenOffice.org (OOo) without requiring a pointing device,
such as a mouse or trackball, by using its built-in keyboard shortcuts.
Tasks as varied and complex as docking and un-docking toolbars and
windows, or changing the size or position of objects can all be
accomplished with only a keyboard. Although OOo has its own
extensive set of keyboard shortcuts, each component provides others
which are specific to its work.
For help with OOo’s keyboard shortcuts, or using OOo with a keyboard
only, search the OOo Help using the “shortcut” or “accessibility”
keywords.
In addition to using the built-in keyboard shortcuts (listed in this
Appendix), you can also define your own. You can assign shortcuts to
standard Impress functions or your own macros and save them for use
with Impress only, or with the entire OpenOffice.org suite.
To adapt shortcut keys to your needs, use the Customize dialog box as
described in this section and in “Customizing keyborad shortcuts” in
Chapter 11 (Setting Up and Customizing Impress).
