Sounds to me like your 'Format' dialog window is out of screen area.

Try to use your window manager's "window move" shortcut key (ALT+F8?), then the cursor keys to move the invisible window to a visible area.

If this doen't work a renaming of the user settings directory (~/.openoffice.org2/user here) should reset your installation to default values and the window should show up.

The (position-) setting should be in a node in a *.xcu configuration file - but I was unable to identify the entry by now...
