Hi dazedinlibre

Most of the time folks want a new page (or page(s) within a run of pages) to essentially be the same as all the rest, but be different in some specific way. Additionally, that specific way is often explicitly to do with the header and/or the footer of the page.

Relevant Information:

The Header & Footer of a page is tied to the Page Style for that page. Any text and/or field within either will be repeated within all pages that share the same Page Style.

Here is how to do what you want:-

Step-by-Step:

  1. Click on Styles & Formatting in the Side-panel
    (alternative): press F11
  2. Select 'Page Styles' + select 'Converted4'
  3. Click New Style from Selection & select New Style from Selection
    (so good they named it twice)
  4. Enter 'NoMargin' & press OK
  5. Now place the cursor at the very beginning of where NoMargin will begin.
  6. Enter: Menu:-Insert Manual Break...
    (select) Page Break
    (click on drop-down & select) NoMargin
    (press) OK

Verify for yourself that the new page has a page-style that is still called 'NoMargin'. Modify NoMargin as you wish.

If you want a chapter to be re-numbered, then you need to take slightly different steps at step 6 above:-

  1. Go (menu):FormatParagraphText Flow tab
  2. check Break + Insert and With page style
    (select 'NoMargin')
    (adjust page number as desired)

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔).

Hi dazedinlibre

Most of the time folks want a new page (or page(s) within a run of pages) to essentially be the same as all the rest, but be different in some specific way. Additionally, that specific way is often explicitly to do with the header and/or the footer of the page.

Relevant Information:

The Header & Footer of a an ODT page is tied to the Page Style for that page. Any text and/or field within either will be repeated within all pages that share the same Page Style.

Note that Writer files saved in .docX (one of the ms-office format) files will not save Page Style information; the classic sign of that happening is when a Writer style gets renamed to a "convertedn"-format name such as your Converted4 & Converted5 styles (thanks to Peter Mau for the heads-up on this one).

Here is how to do what you want:-

Step-by-Step:

  1. Click on Styles & Formatting in the Side-panel
    (alternative): press F11
  2. Select 'Page Styles' + select 'Converted4'
  3. Click New Style from Selection & select New Style from Selection
    (so good they named it twice)

    (select) Page Break
    (click on drop-down & select) NoMargin
    (press) OK

Verify for yourself that the new page has a page-style that is still called 'NoMargin'. Modify NoMargin as you wish.

If you want a chapter to be re-numbered, then you need to take slightly different steps at step 6 above:-
