All I have on my desktop at the moment is FC6

Anyway, I am not certain why you would expect 

File => Printer Setup => Properties

to have anything to do with the current document formatting whatsoever.
Are you suggesting that this shouldn't be called Printer Setup but
rather Document Setup and thus duplicative of Format => Page?

Nothing you are going to say is going to change the fact that document
properties and printer properties are in the case of OpenOffice.org, two
entirely separate things. I appreciate that not all programs offer the
distinction but I would think that it inures to the flexibility of
openoffice.org and would prefer not to dumb it down because someone
doesn't get it.
