Finally, I have decided to migrate from Office to LaTeX. That is why I have chosen Kile as an editor, for many known reasons that I don't want to list here because of space.

That's why I need a comprehensive book or would be even better to find some video training course on Kile. The reason for that is that I have never worked with Kile before.

Could you help me to choose a good starting point on learning Kile?

It seems to me like Kile's online documentation (kile.sourceforge.net/Documentation/html/index.html) is quite comprehensive. If that is not sufficient, for what else do you desire in a manual? – ESultanik Jan 25 '11 at 16:56
This seems off-topic. Kile is just an editor so there isn't much to “learn” about it. Have a look at this question for some suggestions about learning LaTeX itself. If you do have any specific question about doing some particular LaTeX task in Kile do feel free to ask a new question. – Juan A. Navarro Jan 25 '11 at 16:59
@juan I disagree. Kile is just an editor, but it's an editor designed for writing LaTeX. It has a particular take on how to do tag completion, how to mark up code and so on. I think Kile is enough of a "friend" of TeX that this isn't off topic. That said, I don't think there are good answers apart from "RTFM". But that's a different issue. – Seamus Jan 25 '11 at 20:58
completely agree with Seamus. Thanks for support – Bakhtiyor Jan 25 '11 at 21:50

Word and LaTeX work quite differently. A lot of what has been said in answers to other questions (here and here) applies to working with Kile. Kile is just an editor. A lot of learning LaTeX is editor-independent.

As has been already mentioned the Kile documentation will also be helpful. Kile is built on Kate, so the Kate documentation might be helpful for lower level issues.
