Opened Libre Office
Typed some words.
'Highlighted' a word
Right clicked and got the menu with Styles - highlighting was removed from selected word as this function was performed
At least I've found the strikethrough command, thank you, just got to work out how to use it now !
GOT IT !!
It's not sufficient to just highlight the required word or phrase, the mouse cursor must remain on such word or phrase whilst you execute the right click, this requires more concentration and hand/eye co-ordination than that required for the previous Word programme that we had. Also, one has now to 'educate' all the other guys who use it - a volunteer Coastguard Unit whose members are more interested in Saving Lives at Sea than placating some I.T.programme.
Easier in Word ( ain't broke, don't fix it etc ! )
Thanks anyway - NZ amateur sailors can go to sea now secure in the knowledge that their mis-adventures can be properly documented for the Office Wallahs, even if they aren't rescued !!
