  1. If you have a copy of Open Office and want to make a small change in the text or whatever, you can open the "Find and Replace" tool in the "Edit" menu.If you want to replace a word (as for instance you might need to if you were trying to correct a mistranslation) you just type the word you want replaced in "Find" box of the panel that opens and the replacement in the "Replace With" box.Click "Replace All" and it finds and replaces all the instances of the word in the file.However if you want to insert something that is part of the formatting, you may need regular expressions.For example; converting data from a spreadsheet to the word processor you might want to replace tabs with spaces.The expression or code for "Tab" is "t" (slash + t) so you find all the tabs and replace with a space. (You actually type a "Space" in the "Replace With" box.)See if you can get the idea from this website:http://www.regular-expressions.info/reference.html

  2. OK clever clogs.:bandit: I was just trying to help, you didn't seem to know about copying.Debra or Deborah, is the original girl's name it means a bee in Hebrew or Greek or something.The short term for the name used by friends is Bee. As in Debbie.

  3. Ctrl +c: copyCtrl +v: pasteCtrl +p: printCtrl +x: cutCtrl +o: openCtrl +s: saveCtrl +z: undoCtrl +a: select all and some morethat's all i can remember from my old computer class :)yes, "bé" is vietnamese. oh. what is "debra"? u can call me that way, i like it 🙂

  4. No I just copied it from the previous post.You highlight the phrase and click the Ctrl and the C keys together on an English keyboard (YMWV -obviously.) And that is copy.Paste is Ctrl + V. (Cut is Ctrl + x that's as much as I ue but there are loads of such short cuts you should learn if you can in your language.)So pe is VietNamese or Debra?That's intere sting.

  5. You are only 14. What do I know of children your age?Change your name will you I don't like calling you fat big.I'm going to tell your dad!
