Is there a way to put a tab or other formatting character in Find&Replace? I want to use tab, but can't seem to find it in the special characters menu.

Hello -- i've been looking for an answer to this, but I can't seem to get it to work. I've tried this combination but nothing. I'm using the newest version of Libreoffice. for mac. Can you give any other advice. I want to type the word resume (as in a work history), but I can't get the e character with the accent mark over it to work.

By the way -- I don't seem to be able to ask any more questions. I had another one regarding keyboard shortcuts, but when I try to click on the "ask your question" button it just takes me back to the top of the web page. When I log out and log back in my question isn't posted. I've tried it three or four times, but I can't get the question posted. When I click on my user name it takes me to the page that has my question, as if it never was uploaded. Can you tell someone about this?

Thanks, but there is no option choice in the tools menu -- it's in Preferences, under "Libre Office." That's why I was so frustrated with this -- I knew it was there, but these things are hard to find. I think this kind of thing needs to be worked on. All I wanted was to change the colors because it hurts my eyes. :-)

Can someone please tell me how to change the background color of my documents in writer to something other than white? It hurts my eyes.

I've been searching but can't find a simple answer. Great program, but this is frustrating.
