Hello, Can someone tell me why my new documents in libreoffice-writer begin on the right side of the screen (I have to scroll over to get to my new document & page 2 goes clear over to the left & below, etc...) -- it's very annoying.

tried to attach a screenshot here, but was told I have to have "karma3"...

As far as I understand your description:

Menu View → Zoom... → View layout

ʘ Single page
instead of
ʘ Columns ☑ Book mode

view layout single page
