Increase the ruler and green handlers size

Postby Kovalevskaya » Fri Nov 30, 2018 8:15 pm

Hello everybody!:

I want to make two simple questions to costumize OpenOffice.

*Is there a way to increase the size of the rulers in writer ?
*Is there a way to increase the size of the green squares handlers of the images and change its colors?

Thanks!

I don't know - but they aren't the kind of thing you'd expect to be customizable.

Why is this a problem for you? If its because you have a small high resolution screen then you could look at reducing the display resolution so everything becomes bigger.

Edit:
If you were on Windows there would be Windows magnifier... maybe Ubuntu has something similar?

The only reason is that I want to use Open Office in a touch computer , and it is difficult change the margins or resize an image with fingers.

Thanks!

See Tools > Options ..., for what you can customise.
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

Resize by typing the width and height etc in the Picture options that you get by double clicking?
Change the margins by typing them in using paragraph properties?
Use a stylus?
