In LO writer (Ubuntu 18.04) the 'format page' and 'format paragraph' windows are too large for my laptop screen. ('Format page' shows the same behaviour in calc.) Some of the boxes on the window become difficult to address. I cannot see any way to adjust the window size. Any suggestions how I might fix this?

Since reporting this as a bug, Buovjaga has solved the problem for me.

Hello, First I am a newbie =) I have not completely understood question but if you think screen is to large for your laptop try - View - Normal

I can see something similar with the "font features" menu, but not with the page or character formatting. Which desktop do you use?

Thanks for replies. Sorry for delay responding. Lika, I am using 'View-Normal', but this is not about the way the document is displayed, only the formatting windows. RB-es, Yes, 'Format-Character' has the same problem. Which desktop? Gnome, I believe (running vanilla).

Version 6.2.0 had several display problems (if you want some stability, always avoid any "dot zero" version). Try with 6.2.2, it works better.
