With Fontwork you can create graphical text art objects; for example, for decorative headings. There are many different settings for text art objects (line, area, position, size, and more), so you have a large choice.
You can use two toolbars for working with Fontwork objects.
- Go to View > Toolbars > Fontwork.
- Click on an existing Fontwork object. The Formatting toolbar changes to display the Fontwork options. The contents of this toolbar vary with the OpenOffice.org component being used.
Creating a Fontwork object
- On the Drawing or Fontwork toolbar, click the Fontwork Gallery icon . If the Drawing toolbar is not visible, go to View > Toolbars > Drawing to display it.
- In the Fontwork Gallery dialog, select a Fontwork style, then click OK. The Fontwork object will appear in your document. Notice the blue squares around the edge (indicating that the object is selected) and the yellow dot; these are discussed in Moving and resizing Fontwork objects.
- Double-click the object to edit the Fontwork text. Type your own text in place of the black Fontwork text that appears over the object.
- Click anywhere in a free space or press Esc to apply your changes.
