Screen resolution

Postby mclann1 » Mon Feb 18, 2013 4:35 pm

When I open up Open Office it changes my screen resolution from High to low and changes my whole screen completely. Open Office is the only program that does this. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Open Office to correct this and it is still doing it. Can someone help. If I open Open Office I have to go in manually and change the resolution.

What graphics card are you using, and what is the desired resolution of your display?

According to the website http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/sour ... aoo34.html OOo support 1024 x 768 and higher resolutions. What is you screen resolution?

I know I'm not the original poster, but am having this EXACT problem, which is why I came here. First let me say, I have used OO for YEARS & only when I had to get a new laptop last October, with Windows 7, did this ever happen. Not sure what that has to do with anything, but thought I should mention jik.

Currently my screen resolution settings are 1366 x 768 "(recommended)"....according to your post, it *should* be supported, shouldn't it? :-/ Any suggestions?

Try /Tools /Options /OpenOffice.org : View. On the Graphics output section disable one or other or both of "Use antialiasing and use hardware acceleration. Probably the culprit is Hardware acceleration. You may need to restart OpenOffice completely for this to take (not certain); easiest to restart computer.

I had the same problem when opening an old oracle file in file explorer the first time with Apache.

Try starting the OO program first, then opening the file from within the program.

For some reason the file is now in high res.

And the next time it is opened in file explorer it is also high res.

Weird but seems to solve the problem.
