    Default LibreOffice Tip Help

    12.3, KDE

    I want to make the text look sliced horizontally as in THIS image. I couldn't find any way in LibreOffice. In MS Word there is a button that lets you slice the text (or make the text look as if it were sliced), but I couldn't find it in LibreOffice.

    From the image you posted it looks just like the Strike Through attribute. Is this what you meant?



    If so you can define a paragraph style for it. Just set the attribute from the Font Effects Tab, there are several line styles.

    It was definitely the strike through option, except that I had it when I right-clicked and chose Character from the Menu. Thank you, Paul.

    The right-click option is still there, just ensure the text you want to strike-through is highlighted. Actually there are several ways to go about this, depending on your preferred method of working.

    If you didn't want to create a specific style, or use the right-click method, you could add Strike Through to the "Formatting" tool-bar.

    View > Toolbars > Customise
    Select "Formatting" from the drop-down menu (or, add it to any toolbar of your choosing)
    Add
    Select "Format" in the Category section
    Scroll down to "Strikethrough" in the Commands section
    Add > Close
    Position new toolbar button relative to the existing
    OK

    Like this:



    Which I've now decided to leave in place...

    Only possible disadvantage is it uses the default single line strike through.

    Thank you, guys, that's more than I expected. We should have a beer some day.
