Thank you VERY much, Mario!! I'm under Ubuntu, but it works the same way.

2014-01-02 06:39:02 +0200 asked a question Cannot move styles & formatting window

Yesterday, I opened a document I worked on earlier. When I needed to change Styles and Formatting, I opened the S+F window. Somehow it had changed place on the screen, and now is SO HIGH on the screen, that the top bar (with which you can move the window around) is way above the top edge of my screen.

There is no way I can drag it to a lower position. Is there a way to restore the position of the S+F window to a more normal position?

EDIT: Even when I open Calc, the S+F window is in the same place.

Please help. Thank you in advance.

1 - My base-document is an auto-generated 200-page document, made by merging a template and a database. That template has two columns.

2 - Now I need to split this document into 14 or 15 sections, each section beginning with one or two one-column page(s).

Insert -> Manual break -> Style offers a short list of pre-defined styles, but none that I made myself. The list starts with Convert 1 thru 6, etc.

So, LibreOffice isn't capable of handling documents with variable column count? I can hardly believe I'm the first person who wants to do this. There MUST be some solution.

HELP!! :-)

Hello all,

I have created a document with a two-column layout. Now I need to insert a few pages based on a one-column layout.

Problem is: I can't get rid of the two column layout.

I tried adding a Section and copying my text into it, but it's two columns all the same. I guess I must be doing something wrong.

Please help.
