[Solved] Number of pages in window in Writer

Postby shanmv » Mon Jan 21, 2019 5:21 pm

Hello. I am running Open Office 4.1.5 on my Windows 8.1 system
I accidentally hit an unknown key or two on my keyboard when turning away from my laptop for something. When I turned back to it, the window of Writer I had on my screen had two pages side by side instead of one single page. How do I get it back to one? Thanks

Three little icons at bottom right of OO window. Choose leftmost (single page icon) and adjust the % box in corner, or /View /Zoom.

Thanks. I missed that icon somehow. Looked all over the top and in everything in the menu bar.

As a new poster you will find much useful information in the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials, the up to date Writer guide and the Writer Manual. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

Press F1 to access the Help screen and search for your problem

The chapter headings in the manual are:

1 - Introducing Writer
2 - Setting up Writer
3 - Working with Text
4 - Formatting Pages
5 - Printing, Exporting, Faxing and E-Mailing
6 - Introduction to Styles
7 - Working with Styles
8 - Working with Graphics
9 - Working with Tables
10 - Working with Templates
11 - Using Mail Merge
12 - Tables of Contents, Indexes and Bibliographies
13 - Working with Master Documents
14 - Working with Fields
15 - Using Forms in Writer
16 - Customizing Writer – Keyboard shortcuts.

When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
