WordPerfect "Make Fit" button?

How can I make two pages fit/shrink into one, four pages into three, etc., as in the WordPerfect “make fit” button??

LibreOffice does not have predetermined page objects, unlike MS Word and (presumably) WordPerfect. There is no way to tell LibreOffice, “I want to have this content over n pages”, because pages are just an abstraction that LibreOffice uses to reflow and lay out the formatted objects “in real time”, so to speak. Most importantly, this layout is done according to a page style.

That being said, it is certainly possible to improve the layout:

  • The first thing you might want to do
    is change a few parameters in your
    paragraph styles (assuming you do use
    styles). What is the line height?
    What is the amount of vertical space
    between paragraphs? Are so-called
    widows and orphaned lines treated in
    a special way?

  • The next step would be to remove any
    empty paragraphs (created by entering
    two consecutive carriage returns) and
    instead separate the paragraphs with
    the appropriate vertical white space
    by modifying their styles. If you don’t want
    any space between paragraphs, then the
    first line of each should be indented.

  • Modify the page style itself. Are
    the margins as wide as you want them?
    Are there headers and footers? What are
    their dimensions? This should help control
    the flow of text.

  • If all else fails, use manual page breaks
    to get more pages, or use a smaller font
    size to get less pages (again, this should
    be done by changing the paragraph styles
    and not manually).

  • Finally, from time to time, it is a good idea
    to update the layout. To do that, go to:
    Tools > Update > Update All. Often, this will
    improve the efficiency of the layout and use
    less pages.

Hope this helps!
