Exercise styles in Writer – LibreOffice version 6.4. For the task “format with styles” an already written “Protocol model school” is used. To do this, you create, change and assign
styles. With the help of styles, it is shown how the protocol can be quickly formatted in order to look good. Now open the file “Protocol model school”. In the protocol you can see that the “Default Style” is displayed in the “Formatting” toolbar. This means that the existing text has the
“Default Style”. You will change that now and create the new styles. First remove all hard line breaks and delete the direct formatting. Remove all direct or hard line breaks, they are unnecessary as blank lines between paragraphs, since the spaces between the paragraphs are specified by the styles. Then click on “Edit>Select All” in the menu. Then click in the “Format>Clear Direct Formatting” menu or press the “Ctrl”+”M” keys. Create style “P-Header”. Right-click on the style ″Heading″.
