Thank you Pierre. I did saved the Cookbook..._ott_2.ott as template. Now, when I open ( file> open) a odt file which was based on the _ott_2.ott , It is showing "The template 'OttTemplateStyle' on which this document is based, has been modified", but If I insert the field( insert> field>template>file/path) it shows Cookbook..._ott_2. This makes me confused. The template is OttTemplateStyle or Cookbook..._ott_2 ?. which one to change OttTemplateStyle or Cook...ott_2.ott?

2017-03-21 11:31:53 +0200 ha risposto a una domanda how to know which template assigned to master document or odt file

Thank you for the input. I could find it in meta.xml. I was able to get the same information, if I add a field ( in footer) > template > file / path too ( CB_Template_ott_2.ott). But my original issue which I haven't mentioned before is still there. My real problem is when I try to edit my custom template ( CB_Template_ott_2.ott) using file >new> template > CB_Template_ott_2.ott & Edit, it is automatically opening CB_template_ott_21.ott. I am not sure why this is happening.

If I add a new style in CB_template_ott_21.ott ; it is not coming to my master document.

To test it , I removed the CB_template_ott_21.ott from my templates directory and when I opened CB_Template_ott_2.ott , it recreated CB_template_ott_21.ott opening. I am not sure why this is happening. Wondering whether template got corrupted or some issue with Libreoffice or it may be doing something wrong.

I guess I lost track of which template is used for creating master document. I see 2 templates one with _2.ott and another _21.ott . Are there any way I can see which template is used ( ie path and file name of the template) ?. Appreciate any input.

I want to bring in the header of the sub document into master document and there is no header in the master document as of now. Sub document header is not coming to the Master document and master 1st page style is changing with file insert. If i want to do that, are there any way?. Other choice i have is not use the header for the recipe name that I thought of putting in the header. ott and odt, odm doc. based on ott are here https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bxc...

Next step I want to attach the odt file ( yellow bavcground pagestyle one) to the 6th page. If I insert it from navigator, suddenly all the first 5 pages becoming yellow. IF I create a new section ( named' Introsection) at the end of page5 and put the cursor in page 6 , 'insert' odt file from navigator, all pages become yellow again. BUT, If I link the odt file in the 'Introdesction' ( FORMAT > sections> Introsection>Link> filename), odt file with yellow background limits to 6th page alone.Bug?

I am on LO 5.2.5.1 on windows10. As suggested I creaed the blank new master page, added sample text boxes in the next 5 pages like cover page, blank, title page, copy rights by manually doing page break. then I attached the template using FILE > template > assaign template (current document) . It didn't complain and I see the Testpagestyle(with yellow background page style). I saved it. So it created master document. Thank you. have template manager, but dont see any specific menu.Above one?

thank you for your input. unfortunately I don't think I was successful in resolving this issue. 2nd approach ( adding small text style with manual break) is not feasible as I have 100 individual sub documents to be included in the master document ( at least as per our current plan). first approach of putting manual break is not working either. To debug where the issue is, I simplified my test as follows and want to have a clean start.

first aim is to create CLEAN master document from template.

1.Created to new document (odt). Added a new page Style "styTestPagestyleHF" from default style. only difference in I enabled header and footer and put background as the yellow. 2. saved the above document as template (MyTestTemplate) using FILE> templates> save of template in "My templates" folder. At this point I have a clean Template. 3. Now I want to create the Clean Master document using the MyTestTemplate. For this, I did FILE> NEW> TEMPLATE I see my MyTestTemplate. I double clicked on the template. It opened Untitled file. There I did FILE > SEND> Create Master document. Now I get the error "Can't create document". I am not sure what is going wrong. If I understand correctly, the flow is this Custom styles will be in StandardTemplate . We use this StandardTemplate to the create the masterdocument , as well as the subdocuments. Any changes we do to the custom styles will propagate to the Masterdocument. Is this right?. Sorry for being dense. Appreciate for your input.

I created a template with all the paragraph/frame/header/footer styles I want. But when I am trying to create the Master document based on above ott file, ( file> send >Master document) it is giving error, it is saying "can't create document".

I created a odt file from the above template and tried to create the master document on that, I still get the same error.

I created a blank master document and I inserted 2 odt ( these odt files are created based on different template) files into Master document, I see all the pages inserted from page 1 of the master document. Some where page break is not happneing. I couldn't figure out what to set in the my odt files. they are single page with headers/footers/frame. are there any where I have to set page break?. when I put the page break in the single page, it shows 2 pages in the individual odt files, which I dont want.

Where do I see page styles?. I couldn't find them.

Thank you

2017-02-25 15:14:37 +0200 ha posto una domanda How to insert one piece Book cover in Writer( front cover,cover spine, back cover)

I am looking at the book covers to be made. I see there are two ways 1.Create a front cover, back cover and put them the pages at beginning and end of the doc. 2. I see proper book covers, that can be built with tools gimp, that helps separate the image into 3 parts
ex: http://www.bookmarkselfpublishing.com...

If I create one piece cover, How I am going to set it so that back cover goes last and where does cover spine will be. I know it is not a big deal with pdf's. but if we decide to go for book, having every thing in one piece is good. Also I see some epub's have means to show spine cover too. May be my question is not clear. I am trying to wrap around my head on "How to" what I see and possibilities and what I may endup.

Appreciate any input.

2017-02-24 23:37:43 +0200 ha posto una domanda frame background color in template: Are there frame styles?

I was looking for a frame in template, whose background color can be controlled by custom style. I don't see Frame style, but it does has frame content style. I see frame content style which is more related to text in the frame. I want header color and frame background color to be same. If tomorrow, I want to change it to different color, I can change it easily. Appreciate any input.

I was reading a libreoffice book - "Designing with Libreoffice", it says it is mandatory to register the template. Is it still valid?

Thank ajlittoz for your input. I tried to do this, but "New" field is grayed out. I am not sure why? Position has 3.46" and 6.93" ; Type centered ; Fill character is set to Null. But the New field is grayed out. I tried to create a new style based on footer, it is the same issue.

your mentioning of the 'Tab' made me wonder of using Tables in footer. so I created table with grayed out lines with 2 fields with 2nd field as page nbr field 3 character size( i dont expect nbr of pages wont more than 3 characters). Only problem is I dont know how to right align the text in 2nd field. There should be a way I am not able to figure out. Appreciate your input
