ENG 101: Introduction to Computers

Downloading BlueGriffon 3.0.1 – 10.05.2019

Dear students,

I was unable to find a reliable way to download BlueGriffon version 2.1.1, the one installed in the labs. Instead, you can download the latest version of the BlueGriffon from the Download section of its website: http://bluegriffon.org/#download.

Thanks to the #download part at the end of that link, the link;

  1. First brings you to http://bluegriffon.org/,
  2. Then scrolls the page to where the element with the ID download is.

It is another use-case of the IDs in HTML, which we will cover in the next week's lab. As another example, I have assigned the ID;

  • bluegriffon to this announcement, and
  • libre to the announcement regarding LibreOffice installation.

Try typing "#bluegriffon" and "#libre" to the end of the address on your browser, and see how it navigates you to those locations.

Thank you,
Utkan

Downloading LibreOffice 5.x – 11.02.2019

Dear students,

As promised, here is the page that I've found out for downloading previous versions of LibreOffice: https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

Specifically, the version 5.2.1.2 (which was the version installed the last week when I checked) can be installed from:

If you are using Windows and are not sure which one to install, go for the 32bit version. You are always free to use the latest version, although it may have noticable differences, especially in the interface, than the LibreOffice installed in the lab computers.

Thank you,
Utkan
