Description fja 2004-08-26 11:59:00 UTC
When working with large tables and using sorting by statuscode one should be 
able to insert a manual pagebreak (ctrl+enter) in a table celle, forcing the 
next row to start on the next page (with repeated heading of course).

This is possible in most other word processors (WordPerfect, MS Word, Lotus 

In on-line help it is not stated that pagebreaks can not be used in tables - so 
this must be a defect.

Duplicate to issue 42179. I don't know, which I should mark as duplicate,
because 42179 has a vote and both have references to duplicate issues.

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

Ovbiously it should be possible to break the page where wanted inside a table:
- manually as required originally
- usign a paragraph style, for instance some specific table content would require a page (or maybe column) break.

The requirement was posted in 2004, and was rightly remarking that this feature existed in most word processors at the time.

Almost 10 years and 3 major versions later, the ticket is still open, nobody cares.

Is OpenOffice dead ?
