Description mark_c 2007-07-20 10:48:19 UTC
The parameters in the "Options" area of a paragraph's "Text Flow" settings are
not honoured when the paragraph is in a table cell. In particular "Do not split
paragraph" and Widow/Orphan control are ignored.

In the attached document the paragraph at the bottom of the first page (with the
yellow background) has "Do not split paragraph" enabled - but clearly it does
split across the page break. The paragraph at the bottom of the second page
(with the blue background) has widow/orphan control both set to 3 lines, but the
paragraph is rendered with two lines on page 2 and two lines on page 3.

This is a particular problem when the table rows are quite tall due to a large
amount of content. In this case it is often desirable to set "Allow the row to
break across pages and columns" on the table in order to avoid large blank areas
in the document. However at the moment this can result in a paragraph being
split across the page break, potentially leaving just a single line at the top
of the next page.

These options have not been implemented to regard this, but we are going to make
it configurable, as it looks now.
