Open a document in writer. You have the "Default" page style with paper size set to A4. Now you wish to set a new page with B5 paper. You insert a page break. Now if you want to change the paper size, you need to create a new page style with the required specs. Why a change of paper sizes made so tough in Writer? What I recommend is - - provide a <New Page Style> to the end of the drop down box of Page style in the 'Insert Break' dialog. On choosing this option the 'Styles and Formatting' dialog will come up with Page styles and a 'Page Style 1' created and having the focus for renaming and further modifications. Through this it would make things much easier. Please consider this.

A good extension to make the handling of page breaks including page format changes more easy.
