Description andyp 2002-09-27 12:32:06 UTC
Right-click -> Paragraph style -> Text Flow -> Options would be better if it
included an option to keep with previous paragraph as well as keep with next
paragraph.  When writing a mathematical document and explaining what an equation
does it would be nice to be able to tie the equation paragraph to the paragraphs
above and below so that the equation reads as part of the text.

In 1.1Beta2 there is an option to "keep with next paragraph" but not
one to "keep with previous paragraph".

I am confirming this issue.

I would very much like to see this feature implemented - in my view
it would put OpenOffice a decisive step ahead of Word. This kind of
function seems to be available in FrameMaker, and it used to be in
some M$ Word for Mac version (5?). Prefessionals seem to want it, and
here's what I want it for: Imagine a table of contents (any text that
has some tree-like hierarchy, with each paragraph having some kind of
level, but no "unleveled" text in between). I want to restict page
breaks, make them occur at top level paragraphs only. How do you do
that with "Keep with Previous"? Easy - give each lower level paragraph
the "Keep with Previous" attribute, with high level paragraphs lacking
it. "Keep with Next" offers no such easy way - I would have to format
everything except the "leaf" paragraphs with "Keep with Next", but I
can't expect every leaf to have the same level, so a style-based
solution is not possible.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
