Formatting paragraphs

You can apply many formats to paragraphs 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 paragraph 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 paragraph styles rather than manually formatting paragraphs, especially for long or standardized documents. For information on the advantages of styles, and how to use them, see Chapter 13 (Working with Styles) in this book and Chapters 6 and 7 in the Writer Guide.
