Description rblackeagle 2003-09-11 01:24:06 UTC
I have a project requiring page "1" to be on the back of the front cover (a
"Left" page).  A page break will not let me do it.  I have to hard type the page
numbers in each footnote, which means a different footnote or page style for
every page.

Please allow a choice between using "Odd/Even" and "Left/Right" pages and the
opposite for pagination.  In other words, I should be able to set an odd page
number on a Left page if I need it.

A simple note:  The suggestion I am making is not a common one, but does occur
with some pamphlets and brochures.  I have never seen it (odd number on a "left"
page) in a book or magazine, but have seen it often in pamphlets and small
brochures.  I have no idea how it is done except through typesetting programs,
but it would be a useful feature for OOo as I would like to be able to use OOo
for all writing purposes I use.

Similar to this: I need some way of having an "essay with a title page" or
single-sided printing or digital report to a client. Basically I need to have a
First Page template that is immediately followed by a Default page. Currently
I'm getting First Page, Blank Page, Default with no way of removing the Blank
Page. I've opened the issue at but was asked to leave a
comment here as well.
