Template for new page

MacOSSierra - OpenOffice Writer. This has been working properly for about a year.

Recently, I downloaded an attachment in an email - word table - next I had the print review. Closed that doc and was finished with it.

Next time I wanted to use Open Office, the "new page" function would not open a normal, regular full size document - it opened and
continues to open in the print preview mode. I have tried all possible ways to open a new document, I have followed instructions
to reset to default. After I try each new thing, I shut down the computer and restart.

I did see a note somewhere in all my searching for a solution that there was some sort of problem with Sierra and Open Office -
not compatible any longer?

Any way this glitch can be fixed? Unable to use Open Office because of this problem.

Greetings and welcome to the community forum!

If OO suddenly starts acting strangely, it can often be cured with a fresh OO settings profile. This just means exiting OO, renaming (or removing) the folder where OO stores all its settings, then restarting OO. It will then create a new settings profile folder.
