This article intended for those migrating from Windows and Microsoft Office. This is a basic article about how to use basic LibreOffice Writer features to format text. You will find bold, italic, underline, bullets and numbering, text color, spacing, and finally text upper and lowercase.
Bold, Italic, Underline
- Bold: Ctrl+B
- Italic: Ctrl+I
- Underline: Ctrl+U
Bullets and Numbering
To make it, you can choose whether creating numbering entry first or creating the text first. Here my example for the second. Type 2 paragraph of text > select them > click numbering button. If you want them to be bullets, then click bullet button.
To remove numbering or bullets, select all text then click again the Numbering On/Off button or Bullets On/Off button.
1. Font Color
To color a text, select the text > select icon Font Color > select a Color. Your text will be colored.
2. Highlight Color
3. Background Color
You can choose --at default configuration-- spacing between 1, 1.5, and 2. You can do it by select text > right click > line spacing > select line spacing. If you want to apply it to whole document, open menu
|Line Spacing Manager|
Text Uppercase and Else
For the normal text use ubuntu at home you get
- Use ubuntu at home: if you choose Sentence case. It is case type similar to a sentence, which is uppercased at first letter and lowercase for remaining text until end of sentence.
- use ubuntu at home: if you choose lower case. It is useful when you want all text to be lowercased.
- USE UBUNTU AT HOME: if you choose UPPERCASE. It is useful when you want all text to be uppercased.
- Use Ubuntu At Home: if you choose Capitalize Every Word. It is useful for title text or anytime you want every first letter in every word to be capitalized.
- If you choose tOGGLE cASE, any case will be reversed to its opposite. So if you have bEcOmE then it will be BeCoMe and vice versa.
