This is a very common format for poetry and is easy enough to do these days in HTML/CSS, but how do you do it in LibreWriter without manually setting margins? I first tried a text box, but they seem disconnected from the Styles system. Then I tried a frame which handles styled text fine and can be centred, but the AutoSize option does not actually automatically size the width (lines wrap). It seems you have to manually choose a width, so it’s not much different to having different styles for every poem.
Am I missing something or is Writer just incapable of doing this?
Edit: It looks like this is because I used line-breaks (Shift+Enter). This is also pretty standard for poetry where you want a space between stanzas so it makes sense that the stanza = paragraph. Does this mean I have to recreate everything with two different paragraph styles (poem & stanza-end)? Another annoying and clunky workaround.
Edit 2: Frames are all very well until you get to the end of a page. >_<
