Description kivi 2014-02-01 17:20:15 UTC
The last versions of Libre Office 4.x and 4.2.0 always are opening any documents in zoom to 100%.
In past versions of the Libre Office and also in OpenOffice.org was possible to open new documents in last active zoom factor.

Many customers prefer to see the documents in optimal view zoom instead of 100% zoom.
Since last versions of Libre Office it can not be set up to work this way. 
Because of this people are opening some documents and enforced to adjust zoom to Optimal View, but next time they open the same document they must do it again and again... This is very annoying and makes the customers unhappy with the software.

Please make possible the zoom factor of the document to be possible to save with the document and/or possibly make possible for the users to choose which zoom factor they would like to use always they open a document.

Hi Cor,

It helped me.
After deleting the user profile and reinstall of the Libre Office it looks like the problem vanished.

I have to make the same for the users who had the same problem.

Strange why it happen to me and to others. But any way I am happy we solved the problem.

Sorry for writing the bug report about this.

With best regards,
