I have just learned of the great Open Office program which allowed me to get my Word Perfect files from an old computer to be readable in Windows 7. I am trying to get familiar with the tools for writing documents and text.
I am having trouble trying to turn highlighting of text off and on. I have found where the highlighting button is and all the colors that are there to activate. But when I selected a color and highlighted the text I wanted to have highlighted, I can find no way to turn it off again. In Word Perfect, it was click to turn on and then click again to turn off.
I see that doing the same thing here changes the button from dark gray to light gray which I thought was activating it and deactivating it the same as Word Perfect. But no matter what I do, the highlighting color wants to continue on new text that I type. I cannot turn off the highlight color to go back to only black font again. I also can't find anything on the topic of highlighting text anywhere in the help menu.
Could someone please tell me what the secret is to turn highlight on and off in Open Office? Thanks.
