This will probably be a ridiculously obvious thing to resolve but being new to and rarely using Libreoffice it has me flummoxed. All my (saved)text documents have shifted to the right hand side of my screen and I have to scroll back left to get it in the centre of the screen. Don't know how this happened it just did while I was typing away. Did I inadvertently hit a key? Even when I open a new doc it appears on the right. How do I shift it back to normal?

As far as I can see it, there are two possibilities:
1 - you just aligned by accident all text to the right side
2 - you changed by accident from left-to-right writing into right-to-left writing.

You can make simple test: add new characters into one of these files. When the characters move from right-to-left you know what has happened.

Should have switched to direction right-to-left, open Format > paragraph > alignment tab > Properties > text direction.
