How can I remove the icons in the Menus?

You can tell OpenOffice.org to not show icons in menus by running through the following procedure:

  1. After starting OpenOffice.org go to the Application Options by either: going to "tools" menu and choose "Options..." or (Aqua only) "OpenOffice.org" menu, choosing "Preferences...".
  2. In the OpenOffice.org options, choose "OpenOffice.org" > "View".
  3. Deselect the option "Show icons in menus" and choose "OK".
  4. Restart OpenOffice.org.

This procedure works for both Aqua and X11 versions.

Please see the screenshots below:
