LibreOffice Gorkamorka Document Template

Filed under: General

Regulars to the site will be well aware of the custom template we use for document releases. It’s been through a few iterations over the years but has never been widely available outside the tUGS team.

That hasn’t been because we’re unwilling to share it, mind you, just that we only had it setup for Scribus (and more recently Apple Pages). Scribus is great in many ways – it’s powerful and provides masses of control over things. However it’s also a bit of a pig to use if you’re not used to it.

There’s long been a plan to provide a version for more consumer-friendly word processing software (How ’90s is that sentence?). By “long” we mean something like twelve years as of the time of writing…

Well, it’s finally happened. It’s currently only for LibreOffice but with any luck there can eventually be a version for MS Office too. No promises on when, of course. However with GCE in active development it’s handy to have these templates to hand.

There’s a PDF of the contents here (~4.5 MB) and the OTT file that is the template itself can be found here:
