Strip the Formatting in OpenOffice
Ever find yourself looking over a document that you thought was finished, only to find that the formatting seems “off”?
It appears to be inconsistent, and not at all what you envisioned.
In this particular situation, I know that I find myself looking for a way to strip all the formatting from the text and then set the text formatting options to match what I had hoped to see.
With that goal in mind, you’ve got to wonder if there’s a quick way to complete the task…
While I’m sure there are several ways – we all seem to have our own personal favorites – today I’d like to suggest a simple two-step process for stripping our text back down to the default formatting.
#1. Select (highlight) all text
that is to have it’s formatting returned to the default settings.
#2. Use either the Format
menu, Default Formatting
option or it’s key equivalent of Ctrl + M
And that’s it!
The selected text is changed back to the default and you’re then free to make it look the way you intended.
