Libre Office Manual - Guide

#1 Post by Vegasgirl » Sun Jun 15, 2014 7:55 pm

Where can I find an affordable manual for Libre office that makes sense. I could not find how to add bold to the toolbar and have spent all afternoon exploring in controls, trying to add the bold control in the standard toolbar unsuccessfully.

Bold should be in the tool bar, but if it isn't then you can right-click in the tool bar and choose Customize Toolbar to add it.

It's just to the right of the Font size.

Also look at right click toolbar / Visible buttons.
