I've looked around quite a bit on Google and asked on IRC as well, but I can't seem to find an answer for this:

Is there a way to center the Page? Not the text, but the, er... white stuff that the text goes on.

In MS Word (which is what I'm transitioning from), the Page runs through the center of the screen. In OpenOffice, it is aligned to the left. Besides not being used to it, it's kind of a pain to have to look all the way on the left side of my widescreen continuously instead of just staring at the middle of it.

Well, is there any way to fix this? Help is greatly appreciated!

P.S. While we're at it...how to add page numbers? Automatically, to the lower right side, not just in the middle of the text.

IIRC:
1. Insert->Footer
2. Insert->Page Number

As above, but tab once to centre the page number, twice to right align it.
