Creating a blank document
You can create a new, blank document in Writer in several ways.
When OOo is open but no document is open (for example, if you close all the open documents but leave the program running), a Welcome screen is shown. Click one of the icons to open a new document of that type, or click the Templates icon to start a new document using a template.
You can also start a new document in one of the following ways. If a document is already open in OOo, the new document opens in a new window.
- Press the Control+N keys. A new empty document opens. If you already have a document open, the new document appears in a new window.
- Use File > New > Text Document. The result is the same as pressing the Control+N keys.
- Click the New button on the main toolbar
