    Open Office question


    I use open office, in fact I have the latest version. Here is my question. If I am writing an essay and I need to quote something my text dissappears, and even the quotes don't show up. I know there is some reason for this. I don't know what it is doing when this happens and I don't know how to quote something.

    Is anybody else running into this?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    ALT+TAB out of OOo and then back to it.

    Don't have a clue...I just now upgraded from 1.0.3 to 1.1.3. Never had that problem with 1.0.*. I'm assuming it's something funny with the screen refreshes in OOo.

    You can try searching the OOo site/forums/bugzilla to see if anyone's mentioned this and if there is a fix.
