i have had this trouble since using OO, like version 1 i think, and it has annoyed me to no end.
HOW can i get my pages to display on the monitor properly? i hate scrolling down a bit to read the last 2 or 3 lines of a page. i have ahuge 24" monitor now and was hoping this woudl resolve the issue, bit it does not Sad
it's also so very frustrating to hit page down and have to scroll UP to catch what was missed. with sich a large screen i shoudl be able to see it all and page up and down properly, hope someone can help.
thanks a lot, BBB

you don't mention what version of OOo or LO you are using but for quite some time now there has been a zoom slider and/or a page % field on the status bar at the bottom of the window.
Drag the slider to get the size you want or right click the % and select a suitable %zoom or 'whole page' - comes out a bit small for my liking so you might be better picking a %zoom

Hi,

And what about View --> Zoom, in Zoom factor check Fit width and height in View layout check Single page.
This takes the size of your monitor as well as the resolution of your screen.

i forgot about that, it helps some, but i still have the difficulty of the page down not paging, but rather PART paging. this is somethign that has tweaked my mellon for ages. seems alt he word processors i have do the same thing.
currently i have 3.3 installed.
seems it shoudl be a no brainer to page fdown and go to the beginning of the next page down, not 3 or so lines off of it.

appreciate the reminder of the slider, it does help, thank you.

Martin:
thanks for the help, but it still leaves the page up and down problem. Sad it does help me tweak the layout to read better, but i still twiddle with the pages to scroll up and down while reading the last/first couple lines of text.
these suggetions have helped me improve the sizing for me, now if i can adjust how far the pages go up and down when i page up adn down i willb e forever grateful.

if you have adjusted your page size to fit a whole page on screen you can then use either the page up and down arrows at the bottom of the scroll bar - this moves you from the top of one page to the top of the next (even if you are not showing the whole page). Alternatively click the navigator button, between the page up and down arrows then use page up or down on the navigation panel. Another way is to open navigator (f5 or the compass points on the toolbar) and use the previous or next page buttons

ok, sounds like an alternative.
was hoping that somewhere there was a way to make the page up and down buttons work properly. kinda pointless to have them if they dont work properly. i appreciate the input to the problem everyone, i learned a lot and will put the suggestions to use Smile

http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Report_bugs if you report it to OpenOffice.org

http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport if you report it to LibreOffice

Google is a wonderful way of finding things out, that is what I just did!

alllrighty then!
open office can officially forget me beinginvolved in helping if they cant streamilen thier damned bug reprorting.
i created an accoun tin OO to make an account in kenai, then another in some blasted place and i still could not properly report a frigging bug.

im sorry, but if this is how they treat their helpers, screw it.

OO simple, log in, click report bug, type bug, hit submit, done.
how simple could it be?

It would be a bis loss for the OpenOffice user community if you stop helping us.
We ask you humble to reconsider your decision.

The bug report system is terrible. But don't forget that if lots of people report the same bug (and that happens a lot even now), keeping track of all those reports becomes a nightmare.

Bug reports for OOo should be filed at the Apache bugzilla: https://issues.apache.org/ooo/ - the old OOo bugzilla is now read-only.
