Description h.ilter 2005-10-25 13:15:23 UTC
- New Writer doc
- Insert footer
- Insert page number and page count within the footer
- Run mailmerge
- Save merged documents as one single document
- Load the single document
-> Second page lost.
Note: Due to the footer, the second page was not empty. But also empty pages
mustn't dissapear.
Comment 1 Oliver Specht 2005-11-17 15:08:13 UTC
Sorry, I don't understand what you did. 
Where did you create a second page. Inserting a footer doesn't create a second page.
Comment 2 h.ilter 2005-11-17 16:27:11 UTC
Ok, here are the easier steps
- New Writer doc
- Strg+Return for the second page
- Start MailMerge
Until step6 it's all ok. 
Step7 will lost the second page which will be back on step6.
Comment 3 Oliver Specht 2005-11-18 07:24:02 UTC
O.k., you have an empty first page and that gets lost. That is a bug but it's
nothing worth prio  3  and target 2.02.
Comment 4 h.ilter 2005-11-18 09:24:23 UTC
My mistake, I have to give a better description.
- New writer doc
- Insert dummy text
- Strg+Return
- Type one line text on second page
-> Now we have two pages and both are not empty
- Run MailMerge
-> Second page will lost at step7 and as finished result.
It seems it depends on amount of text on second page. In fact we have data loss.

We will not finish this task in the 2.0.2 time frame -> retargetted to 2.0.3
Comment 6 Oliver Specht 2006-02-27 09:05:55 UTC
The page break is removed if there's only on paragraph on the second page.
Comment 7 Oliver Specht 2006-05-18 12:43:54 UTC
Target changed to 2.x
Comment 8 claudiadzm 2006-08-23 09:55:04 UTC
anather possibility:
why not integrate into the merge-wizzard the option "duplex-printing"?
Comment 9 claudiadzm 2006-08-23 10:04:40 UTC
sorry, I did not submit correctly my comment:
Actually the merged documents get in the paragraph-format of the first paragraph
the option "insert break" and "with page style".
I think, it should be possible to chose which options would have to be used.
Normally it's ok with only "insert break".
If you want to have a special page-style to be used for every first page of the
created letters, that could be done either directly in the paragraph-format of
the first paragraph of the starting document or using a paragraph-style for the
first paragraph that would do this.
