I seem to remember previously with OpenOffice.org Writer, I could reload a document and it would automatically jump to whatever part I had been working on when I last saved. (i.e. If I had been writing something halfway through my document, it'd start up at that same point). I cannot remember how to enable this feature yet I find it incredibly useful for long documents. Anyone willing to remind me..?
Thanks.

It is the default behavior with OOo 2.0 and 2.0.1.
I don't know if it can be modified.

That works already by default with me. I can't see any settings to change defaults so Writer doesn't jump to the last position when opening a file. (I am using OpenOffice.org 2.0.1 under Windows XP SP2.)

Incredibly weird. I'm also using the same version of OoW on the same kind of XP setup. Yet every time I reopen a document after saving, It'll be back at the start.

I just stumbled across the setting that changes this.

Go to Tools -> Options... OpenOffice.org -> View. If "Editing View" under "Restore" is checked, then OpenOffice.org attempts to position your screen view as it was when you last saved it, otherwise it displays the beginning of the document.

Think I may have to give up. It was already checked, tried unchecking/quitting/rechecking again, still no luck. Documents just won't reopen where I left off. Weird.
