Hello.

Whenever I create a new text file the paper size is "US letter," despite the fact that my printer is set to A4. I can change the paper size after I opened the document, of course, through Format -> Page... But then I'd have to remember doing that every single time I start a new document. How do I tell OO to give me an empty A4-sized document from the start? I can't find a single options menu where you might be able to set that.

I'd be grateful for any help...

You need to create a template with A4 as the paper size (and set it as your default).

See here for example (for Writer) : Setting Margin Defaults.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' in your first post title (edit button) if it's ok.
