Problems with open office


Hi

I am running XP/RH9 dual boot on Compaq presario 1711T

Whenever I open an open office application the main menu i.e. File, edit etc.. appear in a really huge font so that they cover the whole screen

I do not remember having changed any font size or setting..

I would appreciate if someone can help me out...other applications open fine

thanks

the specific problem is that the menus & surround are massive, documents seem to appear normal size, as does the status bar (kde) above the program.

I've reinstalled from open office org with no joy
I had it installed on suse 8.2 w/o problems (same version from web) and my windows version works fine.

other programs appear ok.

Obviously not ... have you tried to use the
bugtracking system at

http://www.openoffice.org/project_issues.html

?

Cheers,
Tink

I'll try that, just wondering whether it's not a prob with my graphics configurations as have used open office 1.1.0 on the same machine without problems (that was with suse 8.2, now have a fresh install of 9.0) and it was ok yesterday for a bit (between various attempts at getting NVIDIA drivers working and various true type fonts installed)

I will enquire at the OOo website/forums too

thanks

I have fixed it......

the problem was that I put the true type fonts into the type1 fonts folder
deleting them has resolved it

(problem caused by my own ineptitude)

Actually, I had the same exact problem. Finally, I've found a way to fix it. Under the display settings, set the DPI to 0s.
