I am wondering if there's any kind of predefined or downloadable themes or templates for text formatting styles (Default, Heading 1/2/etc), predefined colors (palettes), bullet styles, etc., in LibreOffce.

If there are, where do I find them and how can I apply them?


Right click on the bullets or on a blank part of the page, choose bullets and numbering, then choose graphics.

libreoffice bullet graphics

For other things, go to tools>gallery.

libreoffice with gallery open

The other answers I believe have covered the criteria for what you actually asked for.

The themes listed here are downloadable, but you cannot download new "formatting" styles, you have to create them.

  • Isn't there anything like a theme that will define colours for headings, symbols for bullet points et al? – Oxwivi Sep 3 '11 at 11:05
  • @Oxwivi: no, and you didn't ask for that explicitly in your question. – RolandiXor Sep 3 '11 at 15:46
  • Now that you know what exactly I was looking for, please edit my question which actually asks for what I want. And please edit the formatting styles bit to the top. – Oxwivi Sep 3 '11 at 18:35
  • @Oxwivi: can't you do that :D? – RolandiXor Sep 3 '11 at 19:31
  • No, I still did not understand my mistake. I asked you to do it, so that I may realize what I did wrong from seeing the corrected version. – Oxwivi Sep 3 '11 at 19:39

I suppose you're looking for templates (LibreOffice or OpenOffice). Templates are commonly used to bundle sets of paragraph styles and so on. Usually, template parts as bullet styles can't get organized separately from writer/calc/impress templates, so templates are used with appropriate paragraph styles, for example.

It's possible to define custom colors, but it isn't easy to import / export them. Here's a description how to import custom color palettes in openoffice; [EDIT: there are color palettes available for download, also]. The controls to load / save color lists are marked in the following screenshot:

  • Like I said, formatting and style themes, that is predifined colors, bullet styles and such. – Oxwivi Sep 1 '11 at 20:19
  • @Oxwivi: you need to be clearer about that in your question then; because I was going to say the same thing he/she did. "I am wondering if there's any kind of predefined themes or templates for formatting styles (Default, Heading 1/2/etc) in LibreOffce." – RolandiXor Sep 2 '11 at 14:30
  • @Roland, yes I asked if there were any themes for formatting and styles. – Oxwivi Sep 3 '11 at 10:23
  • @Oxwivi: That's what he gave you. – RolandiXor Sep 3 '11 at 15:45
  • @Roland, that is the formatting and styles available to edit with the default settings. Not pre-defined themes or templates which I would like to try. – Oxwivi Sep 3 '11 at 18:08
