Hello! I have a document with a table followed by a trailing blank page at the end of it. I have presses Ctrl + F10 and there is a paragraph tag there. When I press backspace the page remains and the cursor enters a table at the end of the previous page and if I press delete while in the table the cursor enters the last page of the document. I have tried printing to a file, however, I get what looks like hex code from it so it is of little help.

I'm running LO and still see the issue - according to bug 60967, it should be fixed in 5.1.0

Have you tried to read and understand either my answer here, or the comments in the bug you mention?

The bug was about impossibility to remove paragraph after a table at any position. It was fixed, with the explicit exception of the last paragraph in the document; and that specific case is not a bug, as described there.

@Mike Kaganski: apologies, I just reacted "on the spot" to an update event without checking context. I know the last paragraph can't be deleted and I came to the same size solution when I exceptionnaly need to prevent a page overflow.

As Michael Stahl described in comment 33 of tdf#60967, it is impossible now to remove the last paragraph of a document, because it breaks a lot of things. So, you only could make its font size small enough to fit to the same page as the table (if it's possible).
