Description jondoe 2006-03-29 21:33:31 UTC
The method for restarting page numbering with a particular chapter is to
manually edit the paragraph format for the heading of the chapter to indicate
that the text flow will not only insert a new page, but it will also start with
page 1 (or whatever page is desired).  This method fails entirely when using a
master document and subdocument(s).

There is no way to edit the paragraph format of a subdocument from the master
document, and the master document applies pagination separately from what is
used in any subdocuments.  Page numbering functionality is severely hindered for
master document/subdocument combinations as a result.

To see what is happening incorrectly, you can download the two sample documents
within the same directory and open the master document.  The subdocument was
formatted for page numbering to be restarted at 1.  Unfortunately, that doesn't

Comment 5 eric.savary 2006-03-30 09:00:36 UTC
The master document overrides layout formatting of sub documents to keep the
consistency between the documents.
Instead of a hard formatting in the subdocument, use a page break in the Heading
1 style of the master document.

I was afraid that this would be misundertood regardless of how carefully I tried
to explain myself.

I realize that pagination in master documents overrides the page numbering that
exists in subdocuments, and it is very easy to understand why that would be the
case.  Unfortunately, your solution does not work at all beyond one subdocument.
 I can understand your confusion with this since I only provided one
subdocument.  If you go to issue 29679, you will be able to download a master
document with many subdocuments.

I reiterate, there is no way of editing the formatting of just one heading
directly from within the master document (which I realize is the necessary
method to achieve the desired results).  That is why I submitted this issue. 
The only available option is "Edit paragraph style..."  As I'm sure you're
aware, that option will edit the paragraph "style" directly rather than editing
only the one paragraph.  The result of that is that either all or none of the
chapters restart the page numbering.  The necessary option is either Format ->
Paragraph... or "right-click" -> Paragraph...  However, that option is not
accessible from within the master document for a paragraph that is part of a

That is the reason why I tried to edit the paragraph (heading) within the
subdocument.  Unfortunately, as I have already mentioned that was a complete bust.
