First steps

OpenOffice.org uses a tool called Styles and Formatting to manage styles. The concept of styles and the Styles and Formatting window is best explained through an example.

  1. Create a new document (choose File > New > Text Document or press Control+N).

  2. Type Heading 1 in it. Make sure that the cursor remains in that same line.

  3. Press the Styles and Formatting icon located on the Formatting Bar or press the F11 key. This brings up a window called Styles and Formatting (see Figure 153).

  4. Make sure the window is showing the Paragraph Styles section (click on the top-left icon of the Styles and Formatting window ).

Frame70

Double-click the Heading 1 entry of Styles and Formatting. This will do two things:

  • Give the line you typed the Heading 1 style.

  • Add Heading 1 to the Apply Style menu.

The Apply Style menu is illustrated in Figure 154. It provides direct access to the styles that are currently in use in the document.
