Question 1: How can you specify the default Page Style for a file you are about to insert?

Question 2: Or, is it possible to change the Page Style, after-the-fact, for each inserted page of the file?

Use Case:

I have a master document, wherein I "insert file," and Libre Office Writer "Spam Adds" a new page style for every inserted page, (in my example: MP0, MP1, MP2, MP3, etc, etc, etc).

Definitely a hack Work-A-Round: but it also lets you add page numbers and references from inserted documents .... So ...

  1. Create a Table of Contents -- before the documents that you want to insert...
  2. Libre Writer adds a "Text" section below;
  3. Insert Your document before the "Text" section, AFTER the Table of Contents;
  4. Lbre Writer adds MP[0-*] styles for each page;
  5. Delete the inserted document, and lament all the MP[*] Page Style spam;
  6. Change the Page Style of the Table of Contents page you entered to MP0;
  7. Delete all MP1-MP[*] Page Styles, SAVE the MP0 Style;
  8. Customize your MP0 named Page Style, arranging your elements to "Top" to cover the inserted pages it will apply to, (like a frame/footer to have page numbers!);
  9. Insert your document again;
  10. Libre-Writer Spam adds MP[1-*] Page Styles again, but doesn't overwrite MP0 ...
  11. Delete MP[1-*] Page Styles, --but DO NOT delete MP0.
  12. For some "WoO-wOo" reason, Libre-Office Writer automagically changes those pages to have the MP0 Page Style, rather than to "Default" ...
  13. Profit! And drink something stout to make the shakes go away ...
