    You might have to click the aligned tools....

    Please tell me you are able to press f1 in open office, type aligned and TADA, there you are all the instructions on aligning, including screen shots of the icons.

    Gino, really about time you took the effort of looking into your most basic problems. You're not going to get anywhere if you don't actually try to fix your own problems in the first place.

    Re: alignment in Open Office

    well im sorry mate. the reason why im asking something is because I DON't KNOW! i know for some the alignment might be a small thing but this is my CV were talking about. i know about the align left and right and so forth. but what im not sure is to align a paragraph which is indented from the left so it would be "in line" which the rest of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th paragarph and so forth.

    e.g.


    my responsibilities as a teacher is:
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    AAAAAAAAAAAAaaAA



    * i want to know how to align the first letters from the sentence/paragraph. if get what i mean.

    same way as in msword, by dragging the top triangle from the left-hand end of the ruler along the top of the screen?
