Description blindvic 2007-05-19 18:17:47 UTC
If I use conditional text or hidden paragraph in header/footer, OOo Writer
checks the condition only on first page. So even if value of variable used in
condition has changed on a specific page, the text is not displayed/hidden.

It seems that Writer verifies condition for hidden paragraph or conditional text
in header/footer only on first page, then displays the same result on all pages.

helgekraak -> blindvic: Please download the latest developer build and test
again. I think you will see this issue fixed.

I just downloaded the following release of OOo: 2.2.1 Release Candidate 1 (build OOF680_m16)

I installed it and opened the file in attachment
("conditional_text_in_footer(header)_bug.odt"). But the test paragraph is still
displayed on both pages (on second page it should be hidden).

P.S. "Show hidden paragraphs" option is disabled

I see that it's not moving at all. I understand that there are a lot of other
issues/bugs and everyone thinks that his issue is the most important.
But this issue is conceptual and it removes a very powerful feature - I cannot
make conditional headers/footers.
I am an amateur programmer and I would like to fix this, but I don't have
experience with such complex programs...
Can anyone at least prognose when this will be done? 2009?
