Things used to work fine, but now, for no apparent reason, when I open a .rtf file, some lines read vertically up the page on the left side. Other lines are horizontal, as they should be.
This is very odd. I have no idea why this is happening.

Yes that is very strange. What OS and version of OOo are you using? And do you know what program created the rft>

I am using Open Office 2.0.3 with Windows XP. The .rtf file was originally created in Corel Wordperfect 8. But I transferred the document over to Open Office a while ago and there has been no problem until recently. The file is shared with my PDA via Microsoft ActiveSync. Sometines I edit the document on my PDA with Microsoft Word Mobile. That might have something to do with the problem. The document looks fine on my PDA.

It sounds as if the characters have been rotated through 90 degrees. Place the cursor in the vertical text and look at Format > Character... under the Position tab. If 90 degrees under Rotation / scaling is checked, then this is your problem but I've no idea how this can have happened.
