Accidentally altered window layout in Impress [closed]

Only just started using Impress tonight, somehow I managed to drag a window and it's resized things like this when using the Normal and outline page views.

I can't work out how to get it like the default view when you first install the program. Un-installing a re-installing isn't fixing the problem.

Is there a way to snap things back to the original window layout?

Tools - Gallery hasn't rectified it.

Have you tried to reset your → LibreOffice user profile?

Now we're getting somewhere. Only problem now is I can't select which slide I want to edit from the left hand side of the page in Normal view as there is no slide sorter.

You may try: Menu Tools → Gallery (mouse click on "Gallery")


Another trying:
Press "Ctrl" and double click on the grey area. undock_gallery

That will undock the Gallery window.
Now you can try to resize this window.

(Resetting the user profile should recover the default settings – see my comment above.)

Resetting the user profile is the best option I think.

Thanks very much for the help.
