    When you open a new document you should be able to choose the type. I'm using NeoOffice which runs without X11 and with this the 'New' icon has a drop-down list.

    Yes... NeoOffice is a Mac port of OOo that doesn't use X11. It's essentially a branch off of OOo 2.x at this point.

    But you should also be able to access the rest of OOo... have you tried what the previous poster said?
