Thor, Leomar Umpad, Eng, Jen M
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to do some basic formatting while using Open Office 4 with a Macbook air.
First thing you are going to do is open the program - that's what we have here
Next, we are going to select the text that we pretend in order to format it.
We are going to click on format in the top of the window button top of the screen
Next, we are going to click on Character
Character is going to give us a number of options - formatting options.
The first one is the font, and now we know how to choose that font that we prefer
Different styles in order to create and insert in the document.
Next, to the side of that, we have Typeface
Regular, Italic, Bold or Bold Italic.
We also have the font size - that can create a font and the size that we prefer
There we go, make it bold.
Other things we can do in this menu are font effects where we can choose a number of colors so we can make a nice turquoise, red or magenta
Effects - Capitals, Lowercase, Title, Small Capitals - these our designs
There is also Outline, Shadow, Blinking, and Hidden
Let's tick a shadow in it here we go. To make more interesting.
We also have other options to underline and to do other things
That is the more usual formatting options.
We can change the Position and changed where exactly we want it - we can do that. Raise it or lower it and move it between the lines.
Also, if we go to Hyperlink we can insert a Hyperlink as well
Then, Background - we can create some colors in the Background
Some shades, or something just to make it more esthetically pleasing.
If we click on Font, we can see that this is the font that will appear on the screen
If we click on OK now, you can see that we have managed to format a more exciting and more visually stimulating and interesting style for the text that we have written
A number of these options can be done without entering the Format and the Character Menu
You can do this on the screen. As you can see here, we have the font. Next to the font we have the font size.
There is also the Bold button, Italic button and Underline button
There are also some color buttons to the right
As you can see, there are some options to change some of the colors.
You can format through the menu in the format section on the top of screen or use formatting settings in the program on screen
If you want to delete the formatting, you can delete format also
You can highlight the text.
Go to Format and to Default formatting
That will return the text to the original and default setting or formatting
