This is to avoid having to change the font and left hand offset in every line callout one at a time.
When I first saw this question, I had no clue what you were asking (having never used callouts), so looked
forward to an answer, to at least help understand the question. When no answer came, I tried the LibreOffice
7.1 Help on "callout" -- and found it unhelpful:
"Opens the Callouts toolbar from which you can insert graphics into your document."
But that leaves these problems:
(1) It's not clear WHAT "Opens the Callouts toolbar" [apparent bug in the Help], and IAC:
(2) As installed (that is, in the default configuration), View=>Toolbars shows *no* "Callouts
As for (1): *WHAT* opens the Callouts toolbar?
As for (2): The lack of a toolbar, which is supposed to exist, led me to:
View => Toolbars => Customize...
In the Toolbars tab, with <Scope:LibreOffice Writer>, the <Target> box shows "Callouts" among the
possible tool bars, but gives no control (that I can see) for how to make it appear in the View=>Toolbars menu.
Further, after much searching, I found that the Drawing toolbar has these three apparently-relevant
<Category:Options> "Callout Shapes"
<Category:Drawing> "Vertical Callouts"
(The command categories were found in a subsequent command search on "callout".)
But none of that gets any closer to /using/ these commands. So, at the most basic level of use:
How do you /invoke/ callouts? - via a Callouts toolbar or the Drawing toolbar? If you use a
Callouts toolbar, how do you make it appear?
