Text Formatting Bar

The Text Formatting Bar that is displayed when the cursor is in a text object, such as a text box or a drawing object, contains formatting and alignment commands.

Font Name

Allows you to select a font name from the list or enter a font name directly.

You can enter several fonts, separated by semicolons. LibreOffice uses each named font in succession if the previous fonts are not available.
