Description Tony 2013-10-21 01:28:21 UTC
(Windows7Prof64bit, HP Elitebook 8560p)
Using OoWriter, open a new text file, then click the "part-screen" windows icon (top left of screen).  OoW produces a window almost completely filling the screen, so the user must always drag the edges to a sensible part-screen size.

There is no way to set this to a user preference (?)

If the user produces a convenient part-screen size (say - the top left quarter of the screen), he can save the current file in that size (and reopen it later).  But this does not affect the default size and position:  when he starts a new text file, OoW will once again produce the huge "part-screen" window.

Suggested solutions:  
- the default part-screen size and position automatically reset to the last part-screen created by the user, or
- the default part-screen size and position can by set as an option by the user, or
- the default part-screen occupies about a quarter of the screen, NOT in the centre (leaving room to run other apps)

Thanks for reading this.  Tony
