After modifying "Left and Right" page layout style, left (even) page
header/footer  height/spacing is not updated on screen, though is updated in the
Occurs on:
2.0.3-2 Debian build on Linux
2.0.169 native build on Windows 98

Cannot check now, but didn't notice this to happen on 2.0.1-5 Debian build.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open new text document.
("Default" page style: "Right and left" page layout)
2. Create 2 or 4 pages: "Insert-> Manual break-> page break", style "none" or
"default" (i.e. the same).
3. Modify "Default" style:
Header" tab:
a) Check "Header on".
b) Uncheck "Same content left/right".
c) Uncheck "AutoFit height".
d) Set "Height" to "0.10 cm".
e) Click "OK"
- all headers are resized.
6. Now modify "Default" page style again: change header height to e.g. 1 cm, and
click OK.

- only odd (right) page headers are resized, and even (left) page headers are
Expected: all page headers are resized.

7. Save and close the document.
8. Open it again: all headers are resized, as expected.

Steps 6-8 may be repeated again with the same result.

This also applies to:

Footer height
Header spacing
Footer spacing.

MRU->OS: easy to reproduce with attached sample. Open this in OO, change the
footer height -> will be only aplied on odd pages. It looks, that Writer is
confused by the unchecked "same content on left/right pages" option.

I've found a simple work-around for this problem.

After modifying the height, etc., reopen the Page style dialog and *change the style name*. This seemingly has the effect of jolting the system into re-eveluating all the settings and reformatting the document accordingly.

Save and reopen after any layout change is annoying.
Comment 7 Marcus 2017-05-20 10:44:58 UTC
Reset the assignee to the default "".
