[Solved] Sheet tabs have disappeared

Postby dcompito » Thu Jul 30, 2020 11:51 pm

The tabs at the bottom of my sheet disappeared. Though I am able to access the individual sheets by going to a navigator. It was explained in a "Help" forum to go to Tools>Options>OpenOffice Calc>View and make sure "Sheet Tabs" is checked.

It is checked, but there are still no tabs. Does anybody have any ideas?

Have you tried restarting OpenOffice? This would include stopping the Quickstarter, if you are using that. It would appear as an icon in the system tray of a Windows computer.

If the reastarting not help, then
- try to reset the user profile of the AOO
- try to reinstall the AOO
- try to install the LibreOffice (at least a portable version of it).

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

Perhaps the Slider which separates the Sheet tabs region from the Scroll bar region is too far to the left, preventing any sheet tabs from being displayed.
If you need additional assistance attach a document demonstrating the difficulty (remove confidential information then use Post Reply, not Quick Reply, and don't attach a picture instead of the document itself).

I had the same thing happen. Solved it by unchecking the sheet tabs in OpenOffice Cal - view, then closing Options and reopened it and checked sheet tabs box. Behold it showed up again.
