Description susancragin 2011-03-28 13:51:56 UTC
I am requesting this as an enhancement. 
Many of us now have netbooks and smaller computer screens. 
When I open a writer document, I open an 8x11 page with 1.5" margins into a 5" window. 
The view defaults to the left-hand side of the page. This is very annoying, because I constantly have to drag the document back to where I can see it. 
I don't need to see the margins; I don't need to see 1.5" of empty white space. I need all the screen real estate I can get 
I also don't want to work in WebLayout view because I need to see page breaks. 
I wish there were a setting in Options / Writer / View to have the initial view set up to be the left-hand margin of my text, rather than the left-hand margin of the page.

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
