Description 55revvie77 2008-11-18 22:07:24 UTC
Using Intel Macintosh OS 10.5.5
I prefer using a vertical, or "portrait", display. Neither OpenOffice or StarOffice display properly. The page 
display is too narrow - indeed typed letters overlap in writer. 
This is not an Apple bug - suggested on the OpenOffice mailing list -  as every other piece of software I 
use, including NeoOffice, handles the vertical screen with no problems.

Please fix this so that my $35 purchase of StarOffice will not be wasted.

@ 55revvie77: Which OOo/SO version are you using? Have you tried the newest OOo

within the last year. Please provide feedback as requested and re-test with the the latest version of OpenOffice - the problem(s) may already be addressed. 

You can download Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1 from
