Using Sections

From LibreOffice Help
Jump to: navigation, search

Sections are named blocks of text, including graphics or objects, that you can use in a number of ways:

  • To prevent text from being edited.
  • To show or hide text.
  • To reuse text and graphics from other LibreOffice documents.
  • To insert sections of text that uses a different column layout than the current page style.

A section contains at least one paragraph. When you select a text and create a section, a paragraph break is automatically inserted at the end of the text.

You can insert sections from a text document, or an entire text document as a section into another text document. You can also insert sections from a text document as links in another text document, or in the same document.

Sections and Columns

You can insert sections into an existing section. For example, you can insert a section containing two columns into a section that contains one column.

A section layout, for example on the number of columns, has priority over the page layout defined in a page style.
