I have a page enclosed by manual page breaks. Now I want to copy this page as a whole, as it is possible in LO Draw or Impress for instance.

How is this possible in Writer?


Ok, maybe this wasn't clear enough:
I want to copy and paste the page in the same document (i.e. duplicate) or paste it into another writer document.
Currently I manually mark all the page content and hit copy & paste. But I find this to cumbersome, especially with the manually marking, so I thought there might be an easier way around.

That sounds strange to me. 1. It is not easy to carry out all styles.

I see 2 possiblities:

1 - Select the text of this page, copy, go into Draw or Impress, open a text box, paste or paste special

2 - Cut the entire page with a tool from screen and paste it as an image into Draw or Impress

Choice depends on what you want to achieve.

I don't know the solution with mouse only.

Except: you can save as new file, delete everything after this page - then delete everything behind this page.

Would you like to state the purpose or usage of such a function? If it is something common/really useful then this shall fell into "improvement/ bug report/feature request" category, since I don't know a simple way doing so.

Even the Export to PDF with Hybrid function do not support the way what you want.

Print single page as another ODT or PDF/ODT hybrid rather than PDF/Postscript?
