SOLVED Can not resize maximized Libreoffice calc window

Postby Herbivore on Thu Apr 19, 2012 5:52 am

Problem: Libreoffice (or Open Office) Calc file stuck in sort-of maximized state, with no minimize or resize buttons and the desktop panel(s) hidden.

To reproduce problem:
1. From a normally opened libreoffice calc spreadsheet document, go to full screen (CTRL-ALT-J).
2. Save and close the file.
3. Re-open the file.
4. Opens in maximized window with no minimize or resize buttons, only a close button in title bar; no desktop panel.
5. Can go to full screen and out of full screen (CTRL-ALT-J), but problem persists.
6. Only affects files thus handled, i.e., made full screen and then closed.
7. Other libreoffice files open normally.

This problem has recently occurred in both Mint 10 and Mint 12 (main editions, both). Mint 12 is running the beautiful Cinnamon DE.

Found the answer at http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/ ... =5&t=46263

1. Close all libreoffice files.
2. Go to home folder .libreoffice/3/user
3. Rename registrymodifications.xcu
4. Delete registrymodifications.xcu
5. Restart libreoffice file that was opening un-minizeable.

This is actually an answer to a question nobody apparently posted. But as I have had the problem before and neglected to write down the solution, and just spent an hour searching for an answer, I thought to post this to hopefully save someone else's time!

Thanks for posting this! You saved me lots of digging. :D :D :D

On my install of 13 MATE edition, the file was under ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user.

Thanks for the revised address of ..libreoffice/3/user. Glad that someone benefited from the solution to the problem. :)

Thanks, this has been annoying me for about a year and I never bothered to look for a solution until now - I have open office running on Mint 10, and all office programs (word processor and spreadsheet) had this issue, but file structure is different, so first I:
Went to home folder .openoffice.org/3/user/registry/data/org/openoffice
Renamed Setup.xcu to Setup.xcu.old

This solved problem for Word processor, but not anything else - spreadsheet, drawing and presentation.

So I looked at what the regenerated Setup.xcu had changed and in section
<node oor:name="com.sun.star.text.TextDocument">

it had changed:
<value>0,0,1366,768;1;0,0,0,0;</value>
to
<value>223,69,920,630;1;0,0,0,0;</value>

So I copied Setup.xcu.old back to Setup.xcu and changed sections:
<node oor:name="com.sun.star.sheet.SpreadsheetDocument">
<node oor:name="com.sun.star.text.TextDocument">
<node oor:name="com.sun.star.presentation.PresentationDocument">
<node oor:name="com.sun.star.frame.StartModule">
<node oor:name="com.sun.star.drawing.DrawingDocument">

to all have:
<value>223,69,920,630;1;0,0,0,0;</value>

and this fixed issue for spreadsheet, drawing and presentation.
