    Why sounds in drawings? Actually, all the OpenOffice.org programs support the use of the Gallery. The sounds are especially useful for Impress presentations.

  • Rulers ” Not the measuring kinds of rulers, but straight colorful edges in multiple designs that you can add to drawings to create borders

  • Sounds ” Sounds you can add to your files

Selecting Tools, Gallery opens and displays the Gallery.


The Gallery can consume quite a lot of screen real estate. If you click the Gallery's Floating button, the Gallery turns into a floating toolbar window that you can move around your screen. You can then resize the Gallery as a floating toolbar so it occupies a better position on your screen and so your drawing area isn't reduced by the size of the Gallery.

To convert the Gallery to a floating toolbar, click to select the Floating button. Then hold Ctrl while double-clicking any blank area above the Gallery's preview area. Hold Ctrl and double-click the same area to convert the Gallery back into a docked window on your screen.

When you convert the Gallery into a floating toolbar, you can see more of your drawing area.
