Retreiving a saved document

Postby tomclef » Wed Apr 22, 2020 12:20 pm

When I retrieve a saved document, the full-sized document is not displayed. Instead, a miniature version of the document is displayed in the top right-hand corner of the screen and I cannot get it to expand to the proper full size.

When you open the document, choose /View /Zoom and select 100% to start with. Or go to bottom right of OpenOffice window and enter 100% in the % box at bottom right. If the document view changes, you can later adjust these settings. Look at Views, scaling in the Help file for detailed instructions.

 Edit: If you do not see the % box at bottom right of OpenOffice window, you should turn on the Status Bar - check /View /Status bar. This bar contains helpful information if editing a document, and the settings at the right hand end of it allow speedy change of scale and document view options.
