In Linux X/KDE, and I suppose Ubuntu too, you can use Alt-left-button
to drag windows beyond the desktop boundaries. Therefore, if your
window is outside the desktop at the bottom and you cannot get to that
lower right corner, place the mouse cursor anywhere in the window you
wish to move and use the alt-left-button to drag the whole window into
the desktop where you can get to that corner. Then you should be able
re-size the window as you need.
The pixel sensitivity sounds more like a desktop problem than an LO
problem. I don't know what desktop you or Ubuntu uses, but there
should be an desktop settings option to adjust that mouse pointer
sensitivity to a number of pixels. I just checked my KDE settings for
the mouse and it is set to 4 pixels.
Hope this helps.

Similar to gedit (ubuntu), it would be nice if I could point my mouse

cannot even get to the bottom, as it will ofter be off the screen.
This is most obvious when attempting to bring the right side of the
window in to the left. The pointer is pixel sensitive. As the source
for this is 'open' (as in gedit), I assume that this would not be a
Well, where do I start?
1) Unlike many helpful responses, I only had to press the left Alt key
and move the window, and it worked immediately. Wow, ... thank you!
2) Now I can click on any libre office window, and it pops down to a
less than full screen, and moves at will. I don't know if I 'toggled' a
feature on, or what, because it works now without pressing the left Alt key.
3) Re: the different window manager issue, I agree, it seems that it
might be a non-libre office issue, except that the gedit corner feature
works on the same environment.
Nevertheless, thank you!
