Using LibreOffice version 3.6.0.2 under Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS.

Since upgrading to LibreOffice version 3.6, Format Page in Calc has limited tabs to choose from. The tabs available now are Organiser, Header (right), Header (left), Footer (right) and Footer (left). There is no longer a tab for Sheet which gave options for orientation (landscape/portrait), margins, etc.

The Organizer tab indicates the values of these settings, but gives no option to change any of them.

How can I now change to landscape?

Also, when I try to click on a different tab in Format Page, LibreOffice crashes.

This problem has now been fixed. I used apt-get delete to remove LO, and then apt-get install to re-install, and the problem has gone away. –  user133135 Feb 20 '13 at 10:34

I'm using Version 3.6.2.2 (Build ID: da8c1e6) of LibreOffice direct from libreoffice.org.

In my menu bar, I see File, Edit, View, Insert, Format, Tools, Data, Window, & Help.

If I click on Format, I see this dropdown (in part):

format

If I click on Page..., I see this:

Page tab

or this:

organizer-tab

And no freezes or crashes.

It's possible that your version (3.6.0.2), is significantly different from mine (3.6.2.2). Another (unlikely) possibility is that "integration" via lo-menubar causes the difference if you're using Unity. Do you have lo-menubar installed?
