you zoomed to 24% - watch your screenshot in the right bottom corner:
Move the zoom slider to the right (->
+) or use
View -> Zoom to adapt to a zoom level fitting to your needs.
Hope that helps.
I knew it had to be a setting but couldn’t work out which - thanks this has sorted it - but still don’t know why its opening all new spreadsheets with a 24% view

If that happens with all new files as well, you have redefined your default calc template with that zoom factor. To fix:
- Open a new file
- Set zoom to your desired level
File -> Templates -> Save As Template...
- Provide a Template Name (e.g.
- Select a Template Category (e.g.
Important tick option
[X] Set as default template
- Click button Save
- Close the document (no additional save required)
- Open a new Calc document and check the new setting.
Alternatively you could reset your LibreOffice user profile
IIRC it’s not required to define a template for that - if you create a new document, zoom, and close it without saving, the setting will be remembered…
From my perspective you are absolutely right, if the user is working with the default and that’s why I wrote “If that happens with all new files as well” and then OP must already have switched to a customized default template (otherwise … your statement would apply). Hence
a) switch to another default template – or–
b) “Alternatively you could reset your LibreOffice user profile” (which would reinitiate what you describe)
