Product description

From the Back Cover

Here's how you can be more productive and spend less on software!

If "free" is music to your ears, Lotus Symphony is playing your song! This open source productivity suite lets you create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations just like Microsoft Office. And this book shows you how to use the templates, build Web pages and exciting presentations, make Symphony play in tune with Office, and much more.

  • Tune up — learn your way around Symphony and what to consider when switching from another office suite

  • Document everything — create cool documents with indexes, tables of contents, cross-references, and more

  • Go figure — format spreadsheets and set up your own calculations using formulas you create and functions provided in Lotus Spreadsheets

  • Present like a pro — create professional-looking presentations with animations, multimedia, charts, and page transitions

  • It works with Office — import Word, Excel®, and PowerPoint® files into your Symphony creations

Bonus CD includes

  • The IBM Lotus Symphony software
  • See the CD appendix for details and complete system requirements.
