Using the Direct Cursor

The direct cursor allows you to enter text anywhere on a page.

To set the behaviour of the direct cursor, choose - LibreOffice Writer - Formatting Aids.

  1. On the Tools bar, click the Direct Cursor icon Icon. Alternatively, enable Direct Cursor by going to Edit - Direct Cursor Mode.

  2. Click in a free space in the text document. The mouse pointer changes to reflect the alignment that will be applied to the text that you type:

Align left

Align left

Centered

Centered

Align right

Align right

  1. Type your text. LibreOffice automatically inserts the required number of blank lines, and, if the options are enabled, tabs and spaces.
