Using Writer’s drawing tools

You can use Writer’s drawing tools to create graphics, such as simple diagrams using rectangles, circles, lines, text, and other objects. Group the drawing objects to make sure they stay together the way you intended.

You can use the drawing tools to place drawing objects directly on a page in your document, or you can insert the drawing objects into a frame.

You can also use the drawing tools to annotate photographs, screen captures, or other illustrations produced by other programs, but this is not recommended because:

  • You cannot include graphics in a group with drawing objects, so they may get out of alignment in your document.

  • If you convert a Writer document to another format, such as HTML, the drawing objects and the graphics will not remain associated; they will be saved separately.

Instead, use OOo Draw or another graphics program to annotate illustrations.
