How do I get Writer to revert to a fresh state? It has gone fubar on me and I don't know how to fix it.

I've been using Writer for a few years and it has done everything I needed until recently. I've spent hours and hours reading the help files and just cannot figure out how to fix it.

It does not display my documents correctly.Sometimes it shows a multi-page article side-by-side in landscape mode, even after I change the display to portrait. It doesn't always do this, but flips back and forth even after it's supposed to be set right.

It also shows all kinds of goofy "features" that I have no use for and I cannot turn them off. I don't need it to be all things for all situations I want a reasonably simple interface that allows me to do basic writing and editing. I'm on a deadline and trying to reset it is not happening. Help please.

Any help? Thanks.
