Is there a way to view and edit documents in LibreOffice Writer in fullscreen? Preferably, I would like to view two pages side by side, but it is not necessary.

CTRL+Shift+J toggles Fullscreen mode, more info here: LibreOffice Help - Full Screen

And Command + Shift + J if you're a mac user. – Aleksi Yrttiaho Dec 16 '11 at 12:10

The drop down menu; View > Zoom > Choose columns and put there how many pages side by side you want

Then Ctrl+Shift+J to Fullscreen (or from the menu View > Fullscreen; Esc to exit)

Then Ctrl+Wheel mouse up/down to adjust the page size as you want (or before going to Fullscreen, set menu View > Zoom to adjust in "width and height" or as you want).

I think the View > Zoom > Choose columns option is no longer available, certainly not showing in LibreOffice – wonea Mar 8 '13 at 10:41

Go into View on the menu bar and click the entry for Full Screen, second one from the bottom.
