Description janpieter 2005-07-31 13:39:16 UTC
when I save a document with openoffice 1.9.118 writer in the microsoft word
97/2000/XP format and open it again, the page counter only switches the page
number if the previous one has completely disappeared.  When using the
sxw-format or the odt-format, the problem does not appear.  I found this while
trying the different formats (I saved one document, containing text only, using
those 3 formats).  Normally, this is not a problem, but if you have a large
display and a large resolution (1600x1200), it may be irritating, because
(requesting a page size fit) you can search for a sentence on page 11 while the
counter says you are on page 10.

This currently works as designed. Also there is no distinction between the file
formats used for storing documents. The page counter (in status bar and tip on
the scrollbar) will only switch the page number while scrolling when the
previous page has disappeared.
Maybe this can be enhanced a bit. At the moment it works like "industry
standard", means all famous Word processors work like this.
