In Word I made a table wider than 8.5". When I opened it with Libre Writer it displays fine. I cut out part of the table and pasted it into a blank Libre Writer document. There it will not display beyond 8.5". How can I fix that? Right now I don't care about printing it; I just need to see the whole width of the cut out piece of the table on the screen. Thanks.

For this particular situation, I found one thing that worked well for viewing and fairly well for printing: Click on "Format," then "page," then check "landscape." But I really need to slightly adjust the dimensions of the table for a perfect print job; apparently there are some compatibility problems for tables created in Word.

I couldn't replicate the problem (sorry) but one thing that has helped me with other issue was to create a template from a blank Word doc and use that in Writer. Mayhap that would help here?

You may use the Web view mode.

Thanks. That worked. Now if I do decide to print it (in landscape mode), how would I go about it?
