Description g.marxen 2003-07-11 17:00:37 UTC
Enhance page styles 

to allow page styles be based on an other page style in the same way as 
paragraph styles do.

to allow graphical elements like lines, water marks, crop marks and others on 
each page formatted with this page style. The layout elements should not be 
restricted to specific positions. 

The goal is to be able to repeat graphical elements automatically on more than 
one page f.e. letters with basic layout elements such as a watermark, fold 
marks, the logo... on every page. Plus the fist page that has the same elements 
and the address field.

Crop marks ("Beschnittmarken"; marks to cut the printed paper to the desired 
book size) or "fold marks" (marks to fold f.e. a letter) should be generated 
automatically by activating an appropriate option field. Positions of crop marks 
shouldt depend on page size (f.e. DIN A4) and the desired book size, i.e. "text 
size including margins". Position of fold marks are defined by DIN.

While it is not possible (with OOo 1.1.0) to insert graphics or frames
into the header and have them exceeding the header borders in general,
this does, however, work with a textbox.

So if you are able to create your logo with a textbox, insert it into
the header (and make sure it´s anchored to the header) and place it
onto the page where you need it.

See the attachment of Issue 16183 for an example.

Addendum to my last comment: Have reopened Issue 16138 since, although
the textbox shows on every page even in Print Preview, it doesn´t print.

Crop marks are desirable. Maybe it make OOo a concurrent for Adobe Pagemaker and
other DTP applications.
M$ Word don't  have crop marks, a leak point can be explored here.
I use OOo Writer to edit books and crop marks are very usefull.

Surprisingly, I found only five issues on this. I guess it is more of a DTP 
requirement than a Word-processing requirement. However, people do use OpenOffice 
for DTP, so this feature would be very useful. 

If PDF/X1 standard prepress features could be added to PDF output too, this 
would be a great feature. Crop marks, registrations marks, densitometer bar, 
colour calibration bar, and file information are all available in Page Plus.
