In Writer I've applied simple formatting (changing margin size and adding lines on all four sides) using the page format menu.

When I save, close and re-open that formatting vanishes, although text and images remain. I set margins to 3cm - when I re-open this changes to 3.09cm, so could the box be hidden in this 0.09 difference?

I'm using on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS English, and I've tried both ODT and DOC with the same results.

Hi dianner

When confronted with strange problems in LO, the first thing to do is to reset to a Default Profile:-

Re-Setting to a Default Profile:

"If you notice any strange behaviour on LibreOffice, or simply it fails to start, the first thing to try is to reset the user profile."

Note that Profile folders/directories are hidden, so use methods suitable for your OS to enable you to view them.

  1. Close down LO/OO + the Quickstarter
  2. Go to your profile
  3. Rename the folder
  4. Restart LO & try again
    (this re-creates a default Profile)
