Applying styles

In Impress you can apply styles in two ways, both starting from the Styles and Formatting window. First click on one of the icons at the top left (Graphics Styles or Presentation Styles) to display a list of styles in the category you want. Then do one of the following:

  • Position the insertion point in the paragraph or graphic and double-click on the name of the style you want to apply.
  • Click the Fill Format mode icon Image:FillFormatIcon.png. The mouse pointer changes to this icon. Position the moving icon on the paragraph to be styled and click the mouse button. This mode remains active until you turn it off, so you can apply the same style to several paragraphs. To quit Fill Format mode, click the Fill Format mode icon again or press the Esc key.
  • When Fill Format mode is active, a right-click anywhere in the document undoes the last Fill Format action. Be careful not to accidentally right-click and thus undo actions you want to keep.
Image:Tip.png At the bottom of the Styles and Formatting window is a dropdown list. You can choose to show all styles or other groups of styles, for example applied styles or (in the case of graphics styles) custom styles.
