Formatting characters

You can apply many formats to characters using the buttons on the Formatting toolbar. The figure below shows the Formatting toolbar as a floating toolbar, customized to show only the buttons for character formatting. The appearance of the icons may vary with your operating system and the selection of icon size and style in Tools > Options > > View.

Image:Tip.png It is highly recommended that you use character styles rather than manually formatting characters. For information on the advantages of styles, and how to use them, see Chapter 6 (Introduction to Styles) in the Writer Guide.
