Header issues starting from page 3

asked 2017-02-23 14:11:53 +0200 gravatar image


We are using a custom backend application that creates odt files and then presents these files to the workstation. This .odt file is then opened on the device using a .odt software. In the past we used OpenOffice but because the application is no longer supported by our new platform ( Win10 + APPV ) we have migrated to LibreOffice.

We are now facing the following issue : -> If we open the created document using Openoffice all is fine -> If we open the same document using LibreOffice then the first 2 pages are ok but starting from the third page labels and logo's are no longer presented.

We are unable to interfere with the process of the creation of the .odt documents but we were wondering if some LibreOffice setting could be modified in order to avoid this issue.

I have added an example of an .odt with this post. don't mind the *these have been added. Example can be found here!Ak892kmSiyXihu1WY...

In your example, do all the pages share a common page style? In other words, is there between the letters some break which forces to a new page with a different page style?

Can you eventually upload an .odt file for forensics examination? There does not appear to be any confidential data in you sample.

Just tested with 3.3, as well as with Apache OpenOffice 3.4 and 4.1.3. All these programs don't show any logos are displayed on pages 3+ in the document you provided (I attach it here for reference: PPAWP.102.E541A.75896734.odt). And they can't: the styles of third and following pages don't specify any picture (you may see it if you open the ODT as ZIP archive and look into styles.xml).

Header in first style looks like this:

<text:p text:style-name="Header">
    <draw:frame draw:style-name="Mfr1" draw:name="Afbeeldingen1" text:anchor-type="paragraph" svg:x="2.574cm" svg:y="1cm" svg:width="2.101cm" svg:height="1.441cm" draw:z-index="0">
        <draw:image xlink:href="Pictures/100000000000053D00000399E6E6D1B066377228.png" xlink:type="simple" xlink:show="embed" xlink:actuate="onLoad"/>

And for third, it is like this:

<text:p text:style-name="Header">
    <draw:frame draw:style-name="Mfr3" draw:name="Image5" text:anchor-type="paragraph" svg:width="0.566cm" svg:height="0.566cm" draw:z-index="0">
