Apply automatic text formatting options.
Automatic text formatting means that the text keeps on getting formatted automatically while we are typing the text into a Writer document. This means that when we type any text in a Writer document, then this text gets formatted automatically according to a pre-defined set of rules.
To apply automatic text formatting, we simply need to define these rules. To apply automatic text formatting in Writer, click on ‘Tools’ from the main menu bar and from the resulting menu, click on ‘AutoCorrect Options’. This will open the ‘AutoCorrect’ dialog box.
In this dialog box, under the ‘Options’ tab, we have a list of different formatting options. All these options have a couple of checkboxes which control whether these options will be applied while modifying existing text or while typing new text. The respective checkboxes can be checked as per the requirements and thus the required formatting rules can be set.
After setting all the rules, click on ‘OK’. This will apply the selected auto text formatting options to the document.
