Probably there is a problem with the "default" page style where the next
style is set to a "right" page ?

discovering how to do this.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this. If you print something
double-sided - as LibreOffice expects - every document will
necessarily have left pages and right pages. Do you mean that
alternate pages are formatted in some different way? In that case, it
might be helpful to know what this is. But in any case, it's difficult
to imagine how a page formatting change could modify existing
documents, as you suggest.
I wonder whether you are merely describing the way that Writer
displays your documents whilst you are editing them. If this is your
problem, go to View | Zoom... . There are various settings there and
you can experiment to find what suits you. You can also adjust these
settings in a number of ways using controls at the right end of the
Status Bar (at the bottom of the LibreOffice window). If, as it seems,
you changed something inadvertently, it may be that you clicked on one
of these controls in the Status Bar. Changes to the way you view
documents do indeed stick for your installation of LibreOffice (or
rather your use of it); I'm not sure whether they can affect the way
you see existing documents.
Note that there are similar but separate controls for how you view
documents in Page Preview mode.
Could it be related to a document which I created a while back with
Very probably not.
Though it does in fact have 2 columns, I discovered that it is
identified as having only 1 column in the page format window (format
> page > columns).
If the page format you see has only one column but the document
genuinely prints with two columns, there are a number of explanations:
o The pages with two columns have a different page style from the one
you checked. (Documents can have multiple page styles.)
o The material in columns is contained in a section, a structure which
can independently have multiple columns.
o The material in columns is contained in a table.
o The columns were constructed in some other way, perhaps in frames.
I trust this helps.
