Printing Forms that are on OpenOffice.org only

Receiently I have been unable to print or copy anything that is posted on OpenOffice.org. If it is posted on pdf or microsoft forum I can print or save, but any thing on OpenOffice.org shows only half the page. The lower half. I have OpenOffice.org on my computer and until the recient up grade I was able to get everything. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong when I open these items? I have reciently found the perfect recipie card and am unable to get it.

Example: powerless.odg.

Point to one that gives you trouble.

Example

powerless.org or any that have .org after it.

Please try again

powerless.org would be the name of a web site.
powerless.odg would be an OpenOffice graphic document, but where is it located ?

What web site are you visiting ?
Where on that web site are you finding these files that are causing trouble ?

example

I am using your template site to open the forms that are posted on your web site.

OK

odg files posted on diyplanner.com

Let's start with this one: http://www.diyplanner.com/files/August2010.odg
from this page: http://www.diyplanner.com/node/8822

Can you download it ?
Can you open it with Open Office ?
Can you print any pages ?

If the answer to any of these questions is not a simple and solid YES, then please tell us what did happen that you were not expecting, or what did not happen that you were expecting. In great detail, please.

I was able to do all that. I am running OpenOffice 3.2.1 on an Intel iMac running MaxOS X 10.5.8

still unable to get the forms

When I use Vista I can connect with the form, however I only get the bottom half of it with no way to print. When I use Windows 7 I have multilple files show and am only able to get the form in computer language. I have the newest form of OpenOffice.org. The only items I can get are the onew that are listed for PDF or with Microsoft Word. Below is an example of what I receive. What am I doing wrong? Until the new upgrade of OpenOffice I was receiving everything fine.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

What do you get when you download "document.odg"?

Do you get a single odg file ( document.odg ) or do you get a directory with the same name as the odg file ( document ) ?
If you get a directory, zip it up and rename it from zip to odg and then try opening it.

Still can't get in

As I said in the last comment I get the lower half of the form without the ability to copy or print when I use Vista. When I use Windows 7 I have a list of 3 folders and 5 files. None have the name of the article.

zip up?

How does one zip up a folder when zip is not in the title?

Have you asked for help from OpenOffice.org ?

You may have better luck there.

Printing from your web site

I have just received the new up date for OpenOffice.org. I am now able to open all the forms that you show on your web site using OpenOffice.org. It is fabulous.
