[Solved] Page view shows four pages

Postby sdyer15 » Sat Jun 22, 2019 1:09 am

I'm a beginning Open Office user. While I had a document open in Writer, I apparently fumble-fingered a change in what is displayed, and I need help clearing it so I can get back to where I was. Have searched the help menu without success. Also searched through all drop down menus such as View. The problem is that Writer now displays 4 small pages of the document at the same time, instead of one regular-sized one. Same effect is seen in all documents opened in Writer... help would be much appreciated. Thx. Sonia

You can change that with View | Zoom | Layout or using what you possibly used to change it, which is the book icons on your status bar at the bottom of your document. Select the leftmost icon to return to single page view.

Thanks robleyd. View + Zoom + Format + 100% fixed it! I never noticed the slider at the lower right of the Writer page before - I suspect that's where I created the problem. Your fast response is appreciated.
