bug in Open Office

Jim Prothero
I have a text document which I put together at the page dimensions of 8.5 x
11. I need to shrink it to 6 x 9, but when I did only half of the document
went to the new dimensions. And when I bring up Format>Page and reset each
page to the correct dimensions, nothing changes.

Try selecting all, copy and then creating a new 6*9 and then pasting.

Page size is a property of page styles. Do you have more than one
page style in use in your document? If so, you will need to change
the page size in each of the page styles.

You cannot affect "each page", only each page style. You can see this
as the dialogue brought up by Format | Page... is headed "Page Style:
(whatever)". So you don't need to do this for each page, only for as
many page styles as you are using. If you change things at Format |
Page..., this will affect all pages in the document which have the
same page style as the page currently containing the cursor. Did you
perhaps scroll down to display each page but without moving the cursor to it?

I trust this helps.
