Since the death of OpenOffice and the release of Ubuntu 11.04, LibreOffice has gained a lot of popularity in such a short amount of time. Though there is not much of a difference between LibreOffice Writer and its Oracle-owned predecessor, there are some tricks that can help you get the most out of it. Here's a look at 7 such tricks.

We all know that feeling when you have to churn out a lengthy article (See: The Ultimate Guide to Getting Support on Linux) and your fingers start feeling like they don't belong to your body. The most boring part of it is when you have to type the same words again and again. Hence, if you're one of those people stuck in a similar situation, then auto completion is something you might want to consider enabling.

For starters, LibreOffice Writer comes with auto completion built-in so you don't have to install any memory draining plug-ins and stuff. Just go to Tools -> AutoCorrect Options -> and then check the option that says 'Enable Word Completion'. Also make sure you check the option that says Collect Words.
