Do you mean Libre office? If not, you can ask whoever is providing open
office to you to address that issue, and change it.

Try not to assume that anything is globally broken. Try running the
application as a different user. This will isolate your users configuration
file from the equation, for troubleshooting purposes.

Are you able to replicate the issue with any live versions? Have you been
able to replicate the issue on other hardware? Or have you found anyone
else who can replicate the issue? I would be happy to try to replicate, if
you will include details.
