Description nmailhot 2007-07-14 11:09:04 UTC
The new title page dialog is not generic enough
It assumes the only need is to have one run of special pages at the start of a
document. Actual needs can be more complex:
1. several runs of special pages at document start (editorial pages followed by
title pages)
2. a run of special pages at the end of the document (annexes)
3. or even a run of special pages in the middle of the document (the only need I
personaly never had)

The dialog should be modified to allow insertion of page runs with special
formatting at any point of the document

I don't know what you mean with "new title page dialog"? How can I reach it in
Comment 2 nmailhot 2007-07-16 10:21:59 UTC
It's very new, not translated yet and only present in my Fedora-Devel OpenOffice
version, so I suppose it's a OOo 2.3.0 bit

I found an online reference there

Yes, I see. This is a fedora-only implementation (done by a guy of the fedora-team).
This is not part of the official build, so please forward any bug reports to fedora.

MRU->FL: maybe this could be a really good thing for us. Such an UI for making
the page-style-handling much more conveient has been proposed in different RFE's
(see issue 7065, issue 16877, issue 17203 and some others).

I'm only poking this idea around before I bother upstream with it. Nevertheless
I deliberately did not set out to make an uber-dialog that can do everything
:-), but a dialog that directly addresses the faq of "how to make a title page",
sticking in the other stuff would really complicate things.
