When I use asterisks [asterisk = * ], LibreOffice removes them and replaces them by bold text.

Typing an asterisk [*] before and after one or several words makes them bold without needing to use the mouse. In the same way, an underline character [ _ ] before and after one or several words makes them underlined.

To remove this behavior:

  • select Tools ▸ AutoCorrect Options ▸ Options [tab];
  • in the list, uncheck *Bold* _Underline_;
  • click OK to apply the changes.
