[Solved] Document viewing error

Postby faaman » Sun Jun 23, 2019 8:51 pm

SEPARATE PAGE DISPLAY

CLUSTER OF PAGES
Somehow and somewhere in the Open Office program, I must have click on a setting in error and came up with a 6 page document showing all 6 pages on my screen instead of seeing each individual page on my screen that I can scroll up and down to make adjustments and corrections to my document.

Please see enclosed .jpegs to understand better the question I need answered by those of you who are proficient in Open Office. Photo #1 shows the cluster arrangement of all six pages, and Photo #2 how I wish to view the documents....one by one.

Thank you for your help. I appreciate it.

Rob

Click on the single page icon at bottom right corner of OO window. Adjust scaling by pulling the slider to their right, or use /View /Zoom :100% (to start with) and select "Single page" on that screen.

You may in future find taking a screenshot to be an easier way of showing your screen.
