I’m wondering if any Qubes users have found a method for opening a new document in Libreoffice in a non-fullscreen mode in a set amount of horiz x vert characters by default, after a Qubes restart. This has been somewhat frustrating for me.
My system: Desktop computer. Qubes 4.1 with Libreoffice programs in a debian11-hvm template and a “doublewide” monitor, so that I can view two documents side by side. Libreoffice Writer being opened in the Personal vm.
Behaviour: If I view a document, reducing the screen size to one half (side) of the double-wide monitor screen and save it, the document will open next time as intended in the same size (reduced to half screen).
But when opening a new document in Libreoffice Writer, the screen always defaults to fullscreen mode, filling the entire screen horizontally but showing only half of the height of the page. Also if I am opening the first new document of the day after my usual night time system shutdown, I will also get a one-time message box, which I need to clear, stating that the document will not fully open in the screen. I would like a way to preset the first opening of a new document to a specific size filling just half of my wide screen. I have thought there might be a way to make a Libreoffice Writer settings change in the debian11-hvm template and have it carry over to the Personal vm. But no joy there so far.
Possibly this should be asked on the libreoffice forum. But I figure, there must be more Qubes users like me with the same problem. Maybe it’s a template vs working vm thing. cheers
