I wish to make Page Width my default Zoom factor, but when I set it there, it always reverts back to 100%. How can I change the default?
Thanks

Hi,

there you go:

1. Leave OO, exit the quick starter

2. search your hard disk for writer.xcu (on Win98SE, you find it in e.g. C:\windows\application data\OpenOffice.org2\user\registry\data\org\openoffice\Office)

3. open writer.xcu in a texteditor,e.g. notepad

4. find the section
Code:
  <node oor:name="Zoom">
   <prop oor:name="Type" oor:type="xs:int">
    <value>SomeValue</value>
   </prop>
   <prop oor:name="Value" oor:type="xs:int">
    <value>100</value>
   </prop>
  </node>
 </node>


5. replace SomeValue (probably 0) with 3

6. save and close writer.xcu

Note that already existing docs will open in the last used zoom settings. There, you will have to change the zoom manually

good luck,

Thanks for the help...however, I still couldn't get it to work. I changed the 0 to 3, but it still opened at 100%. I also tried changing the first value after "zoom" to 84, which is the size I want it, but it still opened at 100%. Either I'm doing something wrong or the work around won't work.
Guess it's not a big deal. I can quickly scroll it to the size I prefer...just a nuisance.
