LibreOffice Once Upon A Time Primer Tutorial

One of my students is getting very good at Word Processing. Lately, her skills have been improving by being given the task of mimicking the look of pieces of hard copy documents with various levels of complexity.

The other day we came across what we like to think of as the …

Once upon a time

… scenario, and try as we might fiddling with “top” justifications and font size adjustments we couldn’t get a good look in her “document processing” software to nicely (enough) line up the smaller font letters to the top of the bigger “O”.

Were you annoyed by my “document processing” genericity? Hope not, because, in our experience, for the vast majority of scenarios that matter for day to day usage, there is adequate functionality to achieve what you want in any of Microsoft Office or OpenOffice or LibreOffice. It just so happens today we work with LibreOffice, but, as we say, you’ll see the same things achievable in the other two “document processing” suites.

Are you surprised if we tell you that the achievement of a neat looking Once upon a time in LibreOffice is quite difficult, we think, anyway?

We think, though that the functionalities involved in achieving a solution revolve around …

  • using tables … creation of, merging cells of, adjusting row heights of, adjusting column widths of, the use of hard break text with cells, adjusting properties (eg. turning on/off borders)
  • adjusting font sizes
  • using Format->Character Subscript (and you’ll also find Superscript sometimes useful) … unticking Auto to release positioning functionality essential to the positioning of the big “O”
  • using Format->Paragraph … not useful here today … but generally useful regarding vertical justification

We direct you here to a slideshow of a warts and all look at the creation of a Once upon a time document snippet.

Please note, that, sadly, the Save As HTML option did not create a very useful HTML snippet here …
