Here’s a behaviour which I have noticed a few times, but would like to get AskLibO’s wisdom on.
I use styles fairly extensively. It was my understanding that when a ‘manual’ style is applied (e.g., via menu or the like), then it over-rides the style currently invoked. A few times I have set up a document to landscape on page 1, but pages >= 2 are still using portrait orientation. This is (to my mind) counter-intuitive, and always a bit of a surprise.
I think the explanation must be that I have a “First Page” style set, and only it has been affected by my manual setting of “landscape”. So getting to page 2 requires another manual intervention to get landscape orientation again.
There are two questions arising:
1. Is there a way to set this manually on p. 1 so that subsequent pages WILL have the landscape orientation (do I really need to set up another template for this?); and
2. Is it worth logging this as an enhancement request (not if it’s “only me”, or if there’s a good answer to #1).
I’m using Lib0 4.x mostly on Ubuntu flavours. Thanks for any help with this!
