Format Menus Greyed Out

Postby Scarlet-Noble » Mon Feb 04, 2019 6:33 am

I was typing out a story on my laptop- it's a Windows 10- and I was trying to add some text effects to a word. I went to the format > object menu but all the options were greyed out. I then noticed that some of the other options in the format menu. It's kind of frustrating. :crazy: Help?

Use the Styles instead of the direct (manual) formatting method.
The most valuable feature of the AOO/LO are the Styles.

Please, edit the initial post in the topic: add the word [Solved] at the beginning of the subject line - if your problem has been solved.
