Hi Andrea,

Do you installed only TexStudio, or TexStudio+TexLive?

To get whole structure of Cin Manual for local use you should:

1.Go to the main repo of manual https://github.com/einhander/cin-manual-latex and grab the latest version.
1a. If you have git installed you can open terminal in desired folder
and clone whole repo to that folder by command:

git clone https://github.com/einhander/cin-manual-latex

1b. If you don't have git, or don't want to use it just go to 
https://github.com/einhander/cin-manual-latex click on Clone or
Download, select Download Zip. Extract it to desired folder.

2. Open CinelerraGG_Manual.tex with TexStudio and hit F5 to compile and
view resulted PDF.

About "convert to Latex" option in TexStudio.
It convert special characters to latex format, not rich text formating.

Tex file is a plain text document. IDE ads coloring, highlighting  and etc. 
to help you understand text structure.

>Can I make a copy paste of the sentences from Libreoffice into TexStudio
Yes. It will be pasted as a plain text. I do all formating manually.  

>I apologize for all these annoying beginner questions.
That's OK. Feel free to ask any questions about latex.
