How to use « le guide de celestia » as a PDF file without Word

- if you don’t have it, download LibreOffice 6.x from and install it.
- download Frank Gregorio’s “Guide to Celestia 1.60” and unzip it.
- open the .doc file in LibreOffice
- right click on the table of content at the beginning of the text
- click “supprimer l’index”
- in the main menu, click “insertion” then “tables des matières et index” then “tables des matières index ou bibliographie”, finally click the “ok” button.
- in the main menu, click “fichier” then “exporter vers …” then “exporter directement au format pdf” and finally click the button “enregistrer” to store the .pdf file on the disk, then exit Libreoffice.

That’s it : open this .pdf file in Acrobat reader or even Firefox, the table of content’s items are clickable !
Perhaps an admin will do that tedious job for us and give us a downloadable pdf file ;-)

PS : Celestia is a wonderful Astronomical soft, thx to the devs, and Thx Franck Gregorio for his Celestia Guide.
