Do you ever answer the question? How do I get an answer. I can't even figure out how to ask the question on this stupid website. There isn't enough room to type the question.

I'll ask it here. I typed text in writer. It was ok at first but now when I open it, the right side of the text is off the page and nothing will get it back on the page. What is going on?

I think you tried to type your answer into the search box at first. But you figured it out as I can see.

From your description it is hard to tell what is going on. Please upload your document somewhere and post a link here, then we could take a look.

As the question was upvoted many seem to be interested / have the problem. Might anybody be able to attach a SMALL odt showing the issue?

The upvoter was me so that after two upvotes leroy could upload the file here if he would like to (requires 15 points).

Leroy Check that the right margin has not been extended to the page edge. A simple check is to look at the page format - go to FORMAT on the menu bar, select PAGE and then change the right margin size to the default of 2.54cm or 1 inch.


You can also check the margin handle in the ruler bar margin handles.jpg but make sure you first select the para or text block that is giving you trouble.
