What to do when PDF Option Window does not fit my Screen ?

Postby Gregory A. Chase » Sat Oct 11, 2014 4:46 am

Hello,

When I select Send email as PDF, the PDF Options window which opens for the settings does not fit my screen (I dont see the bottom of the options window). I have a new laptop with 17.3" wide screen.

Is there a solution to make that window smaller ?

Thanks,
Gregory A. Chase

Hi,

The PDF Options window has a fixed size and can't be reduced. Have you set the screen resolution below the minimum required 1024 x 768? The screen resolution for a 17.3" laptop should be 1600 x 900 and the PDF Options window is only about 400 x 610, so it should fit easily on the screen.

thanks,

Thank you Bryan for your time. I thought about the screen resolution but I also thought there maybe another setting

I wil have to manage as is because I like the 1600x900 resolution I have

1600 x 900 exceeds the minimum requirements. I've temporarily changed my screen resolution to 1600 x 900 and the PDF Options window fits easily. At that resolution, I can get the bottom of the window to be cut off if the GUI scaling in OpenOffice is set above 120% and Windows is set to enlarge objects in the display.

The setting in OpenOffice is at Tools > Options > OpenOffice > View. The setting in Windows 8.1 is at Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display.

I set my Writer to 90% and now fits nicely with my screen at 1600X900 (recommended by Asus)
Thanks Bryan again,
