I have a small screen so space is important. I set my writer documents to 90% and my window size so that a 90% document just fits with no margins on either side. When I start writer by clicking on a document (in thunar) the window and the document are launched the correct size. However, the document is not centered. It is off to the right. I have to manually center the document every time. I know that using the view>zoom setting I can center the document, but this is useless, because it shrinks the document so that the margins are showing. I have no use for looking at margins. They are all blank. I just want to see the printed text (and any images). Is there any way to have the document automatically centered. If not I would certainly like a feature to center the document automatically using the window size I have set and the document size (in my case 90%) that I have set.
Use the ‘View - Zoom - Optimal View’ menu item. Put the icon onto the toolbar if you want to make it as an “One click feature”
(Customize a Toolbar or a Hotkey for the prompt zooming.)
Thank you. This worked.
In order for the document to remember the zoom level set, you should enter your name in the menu
If your document is always displayed laterally offset, you may have set “View: Book” in the status bar at the bottom.
There, click on “View: Single page”.
While exploring the answers given above, I accidentally set Main menu>view>web view. That seems to set the perfect view for me. I don’t really know anything about “web view”, but for now, it seems to work perfectly for what I want.
