In Table menu in MS Word, we have the option to draw a table by using pencil tool and erase the line of the table by using eraser. How can we do the same in Open Office drawing?

I can not find the pencil tool in Openoffice.org drawing. My system is Ubuntu 10.04. –  Md Kutubuddin Sardar Mar 25 '13 at 0:23

In the bottom bar you will see the picture of a pencil with a arrow pointing down, click the arrow.

You will see 6 different icons, choice the last one (counting from left to right, top to down).

The next picture is a screenshoot, showing what you should click. For better understanding.


And this is my result:

I think. You should use Open Office Writer as an alternative for MS Word and Not Open Office Draw :)

Furthermore, you may find detailed info in its documentation http://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/OOoAuthors_User_Manual
