I have a mail merge document from a db, is there any way to print all the records continuous rather than printing a new page for each record?

TIA (thank you in advance)

You need to create the style of the first paragraph similar to that:

Text Body 2 (as a copy of Text Body)

Apply via Menu Format --> Paragraph properties: [x] page break

All other paragraphs should be related on other styles.

Before you print out on paper you should print out as one odt file.

FIND & REPLACE: In this file FIND ALL STYLES Text Body 2 (all first paragraphs are selected) and alter the paragraph properties in "no page break". The entire text should get adjacent now.

Took me a minute to get back to this, thank you for your reply. I am looking at format>paragraph and do not see where to indicate that there is 'no page break.' Sorry, but could you tell me where I will find this under format paragraph?

Thank you
