I just got a new laptop and downloaded the latest version of OfficleLibre version 5.4.1 but the GUI got mixed up. I tried with version 5.3.6. The same problem occurs. It seems really strange. My OS is Windows 10 and I used Winx64 version.

For example, when I clicked on the font drop down, it will say "Paste" and grey out since I did not have anything in my clipboard.

I do not see the regular File menu but instead there is a row of icons... some of which seem not match either. For example, the diskette icon usually used for save would have a drop down for "Page Break", "Manual Break", etc. The icon for the printer usually used for Print has the drop down menu of "Text", "Spacing", etc.

I think my problem is the first row for "File", "Edit", "View", etc is disappeared and the mouse still mapped to them... so whatever I clicked it actually mapped to the row above it.

Please guide me how to get back the normal GUI. Thanks in advance, Vika

PS: I have the same problem with Calc and other LibreOffice, not just Write.

I may be wrong, but it seems to me that you are looking for this options Where is Menubar

Thank you JohnSUN. I think this should solve partial of my problem... but my GUI is different. I do not have either Menubar on the File drop down nor the "Toolbar Layout", only "Toolbar" and "Default" is already selected.

My main problem is when the mouse points whatever i want to click but it activates the row above it.
