[Solved] Editor tools

Postby box1088 » Fri Oct 19, 2018 5:01 pm

Since I have been using OpenOffice these last 10 years I have had a block of handy editor tools that floated to the right of the document I was working on. (line spacing, colors, format, etc). After recent crash and re-opening OpenOffice that block is nowhere to be found. How can I get it back?

Thanks, but that is not it on a Mac. This shows me select editing tools and lists them on the side of the document. Im looking for a block of 15-20 tools that is outside the document.

Enable the block I suggested. If there is a column of buttons to its right, clck on the topmost and choose Undock. Now pull the block to the location you desire.
