[Solved] Zoom too small

Postby SheriBerry » Fri May 18, 2018 3:42 am

I was recently using Apache OpenOffice Writer when this happened. I didn't click on anything, I was just typing. I tried installing the newest version but that didn't correct this problem. What do I need to do?

Go to the menu Edit -> Zoom and set it to 100%. You can see at the lower right of your screen image that it is set to 23%.

As a new poster you will find much useful information in the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials, the up to date Writer guide and the Writer Manual. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

Press F1 to access the Help screen and search for your problem

The chapter headings in the manual are:

1 - Introducing Writer
2 - Setting up Writer
3 - Working with Text
4 - Formatting Pages
5 - Printing Exporting, Faxing, and E-Mailing
6 - Introduction to Styles
7 - Working with Styles
8 - Working with Graphics
9 - Working with Tables
10 - Working with Templates
11 - Using Mail Merge
12 - Tables of Contents, Indexes and Bibliographies
13 - Working with Master Documents
14 - Working with Fields
15 - Using Forms in Writer
16 - Customizing Writer – Keyboard shortcuts.

When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.

Showing that a problem has been solved helps others searching so, if your problem is now solved, please view your first post in this thread and click the Edit button (top right in the post) and add [Solved] in front of the subject. It would also help others if you retitled it "Zoom too small".
