Screenshot of non-centered document page on OS X full screen mode

When in full screen mode in OS X, the document page is not centered. 

See screenshot to see what I mean. 

Noticed on OS X when moving a new blank LibreOffice document to it's own desktop as is now possible on OS X El Capitan.

Chris : look at the bottom of your screen near the zoom slider, you will see that the page is indicated as double page display. What happens if you click on the single page icon (leftmost), is the page then centered ?
Comment 3 Chris Sherlock 2015-12-25 22:37:47 UTC
It is :-) Didn't notice that. 

However, if there is only one page and you are in double-page view, then shouldn't the page be centered still?

Good question :-) And frankly, I have no idea - I suppose we should compare that to similar products and see how they behave ? (if such an option is even available). Confirming.

This is still present.

I checked Word for Mac 2016 and they show a single page centered when in two-page print layout, if that's the only page.

This is also the case for LO on Windows, and the behavior has been inherited from OOo

Word 2007 has similar behavior as LO though, the single page is not centered in two-page view.

I would assume we should have the same cross-platform behavior on this, so setting OS to all

Still reproducible with 6.2.0.0.alpha1+ from 2018-10-29_01:05:52.

I'm changing the importance from 'normal' to 'enhancement' as this is an intended behavior. In multiple-page view, the first (and also if it's the only) page always will be displayed on the left as if the row is filled with pages. If the LibreOffice window is so wide and the zoom level is below 100% so that 3 pages can be seen on the screen, then a single page is displayed as if 3 pages are there. The single page is not centered.

In MSO Word 2013, a single page of the view or of a new row of pages always is centered. After inserting new pages, the first page goes to the left side.

Adding needsUXEval to discusss, what we want in LibreOffice.

Personally, the visual appearance in MSO Word 2013 is more 'streamlined' and dynamic. I like it. But the current behavior in LibreOffice is no 'fault', it only looks less modern.

I'm fine with this enhancement.
Comment 11 Heiko Tietze 2019-04-04 05:37:46 UTC
So let's center the page if there is only one.
