Editing Colours and Textures

When creating a drawing, you may need to work with objects of variable colours and textures in the same drawing area. You can customise the area fill of an object by using the Line and Fill toolbar.

The OpenOffice.org term for the inside of an object is area fill. The area fill of an object can be of uniform colour, a gradient or an image.

Editing a Colour Fill

To edit the colour fill of an object:

1. In the drawing area, select the object you want to edit and click the Area button on the Line and Fill toolbar. The Area dialogue box opens.
