In libreoffice writer, if what you are typing overflows on the page, it automatically adds a new one under the current one. How can I accomplish this in libreoffice draw? When I right click and goto Page>New Page, all it does is open up a blank page and I cannot see the other one anymore. Can anyone help me with this? It would be greatly appreciated!

Content in Draw does not "flow" in the manner of content in Writer. Draw is like Impress in that is uses a slide-like (discreet) rather than page-like (flowing) metaphor to present content. It is essentially a drawing (rather than writing) application. The usual method of achieving what you require would be to insert and then link two frames, unfortunately though Draw does not currently support frames. Bug fdo#64008 appears to be an enhancement request to obtain this functionality, although the bug (and the AskLO thread it issues from) is not clear about exactly what is proposed.

Great answer! I will just make a really long page in Draw and paste it into writer as an image then.

To add new slide (page): Insert | New Slide To move from one slide to another: Edit | Navigator and then double click on desired slide.
