LibreLogo feature in LibreOffice

LibreLogo, a turtle-graphics language, is a feature in LibreOffice that is designed to help students learn Python. Turtle graphics are vector graphics using a relative cursor based upon their x and y coordinates in a document.

Graphics are created by using the Logo toolbar.

  1. Click View.
  2. Highlight the Toolbar sub-menu.
  3. Click the Logo item in the menu.

Logo toolbar

The turtle is created when one of the below buttons is clicked. The items in the Logo toolbar are as follows:

  • Forward 10
  • Back 10
  • Left 15 degrees
  • Right 15 degrees

Click the forward and back buttons to move the turtle. Use the left and right buttons to rotate it. Since it only moves back and forth, rotating it is required to move it back and forth.
