I have the same problem with both OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

The text is chopped off. (But it does print ok.)

Changing font does not help.

Strange thing is, other rtf files show no "chopping off." ??

It's your monitor, or X or the font you're using. Happens to me too sometimes.
If your text is long, go down to the next page with the "PageDown" key and come
back up with the "PageUp" key. That should solve it.

None of your suggestions work.

If it was my monitor, all files would look distorted.

The rtf format has the font description stored inside it,

so the files that open correctly have good font information inside

and the file that doesn't open correctly has bad info inside.

If you save the file with a different font it will probably correct the
mistake.
'Select all' and choose a different font, then 'Save as'

Did not help.

I may have to save in a different format, since RTF is a Microsoft invention. Wink

.odt files display without distortion.

So, ALL future files I make will be .odt.

They are smaller than .rtf files as well. Smile

I will live with their not being portable among O.S.es.
