  • LibreOffice Impress Tutorial #4 – Formatting Text

    Impress is LibreOffice´s powerful presentation program. This fabulous piece of freeware offers all the tools you need to be able to create perfect presentations. All kind of users benefit with this free presentation program because it brings wizards and templates to help novice users and the versatility and advanced tools pro users require. Today I'm going to share with you how to apply format to your text.

    A nice and necessary kickoff is that you have LibreOffice installed on your computer, so click the “Download” button on top of this page and get the InstallIQTM manager that will guide you through the setup process of this magnificent free office suit.

    So, when you create a new text for a slide, you get the default formatting and style which is not bad at all but if you want your text to stand out from the crowd you need to apply some custom formatting. Impress offers all the tools to gain full control of this situation.
    All these tools appear only when you use the text tool or select a previously inserted text. In the first screen capture you'll see the default toolbar and the next shows the text formatting toolbar as it appears when you perform the above mentioned actions.

    Almost in the same way in LibreOffice's Writer in the text formatting toolbar you can find fonts and font size, bold, italics, underlined and shadow, alignment (left, center, right or justified), bullets (which we have already discussed in our previous tutorial) spacing, text direction and font color. All you have to do is to select the text you want to apply format to and click on the corresponding button simple and easy, you can see some examples of these formatting tools applied in the next screen capture.

    There are two buttons for “Character” and “Paragraph” that give you access to more advanced and specific adjustments for font, font effects and positioning for the first and to all paragraph related aspects like indenting, spacing, alignment and tabs for the second.

    Final Words

    As you can see applying text formatting tools is simple and easy, in our upcoming tutorial I'm going to tell you about the use of styles as a time-saving way of text formatting, so, stay tuned!!
