I have LO on both my new computer with windows 8.1 and an old xp computer. I set up a page as default on new windows, but on xp the format doesn't match up. An example would be left side; I have it 1.49 on xp it doesn't do .49 you have .50 or .48. I just use old computer to write on here and there. But I got 500+ pages in the one format I really don't want to redo all of them to match. Any ideas why there is a difference?

Do you (@unknown) feel sure posting such a specific question as a wiki will help? How should someone not knowing your problem from personal experience be able to enhance the question? He (f/m) will have to ask back as @ROSt52 did.

It is unclear to me what "format" and the figures 1.49, .49 etc mean.

How many page formats do you have in your document? What are the differences between them?

Before you do any experiment and testing; create a safety copy of you file!

I would check if the you have the same length unit setting in both machines: Tools > Options > Libre Office Writer > General > Settings > Measurement units.

Additional advice: A document with that many pages I would always handle as a Master Document. This enables working with files but having all settings etc in the master document. I recommend to have a look at the free guides which you can download from
