Open a new document, set the page to be, say A4 = (210mm x 297mm) Use Tools->Options->Openoffice.Org->View to change the scale to 100% The on screen rulers now show the correct size of the paper. Use Tools->Options->Openoffice.Org->View to change the scale to 80% The on screen rulers now show that the paper is (168mm x 237.6mm) This must be wrong, the size of the paper doesn't change based on the scale setting in my particular run of OpenOffice.org. The scale value's function is to make 100% zoom on screen exactly the same physical size as reality. At 100% zoom a sheet of A4 held up against a sheet of A4 on screen will be the same physical size. Essentially it's fine-tuning something that should be set by the windowing system - the DPI of the screen.
