... re: inserting or drawing an arrow in Libre Writer. [...] I'm
trying to re-create that look where you place a yellow arrow next to
where one has to sign a document or next to an object to describe
what it is (e.g. camera viewfinder). How does one easily accomplish
that in Libre Writer?
o Go to View | Toolbars > | Drawing, in order to display the Drawing
toolbar (at the foot of the window).
o Click the down-arrow next to the Block Arrows button in the Drawing
toolbar and select the type of arrow that you prefer.
o Drag your mouse where you want your arrow, to create it.
o Right-click the arrow and use the options in the context menu -
especially Area... and Position and Size... - to adjust its properties.
o Click the Line button in the Drawing toolbar.
o Drag your mouse where you want your arrow, to create a line.
o Right-click the line and use the options in the context menu -
especially Line... and Position and Size... - to adjust its
properties. Note that you can add arrow heads at this point.
Can you change colors of the arrow?
Yes - on the Colours tab of the Area dialogue.
Change angles? (e.g. 45 degree angle, etc.).
Yes - on the Rotation tab of the Position and Size dialogue.
But why not download the LibreOffice Writer Guide from the web site
and read "Using Writer's drawing tools" in Chapter 8: Working with
Images? In any case, you can also find this under arrows;drawing in
text in the built-in help text.
I trust this helps.
