Description garganti 2006-04-22 10:32:36 UTC
When I merge a document with two columns (main or starting) by using the mail
merge feature (as letter), I get a single column document, while I want a
2-column document.

Comment 6 garganti 2006-04-25 10:17:28 UTC
If I create a main document with two colums (like main.odt)
Then I use the mail merge wizard to get a letter by inserting some fields (from
addresslist.csv) (this inserts the fields in main.odt)
The resulting document (result.odt) lost the two columns format and appears with
only one unique column.
Comment 7 h.ilter 2006-04-25 13:14:02 UTC
HI->OS: the case is the section which will disappear at step 7, not columns.
Comment 8 Oliver Specht 2006-07-10 10:31:42 UTC
To workaround this the section must not be at the end of the document. Press
Alt+Return at the end of the document to insert a paragraph after the section.
Then you will get the right result.

Subject changed (was: mail merge ignores text columns)

Target changed to 2.x
