I’m using LO 126.96.36.199 on Win7.
I’m in the process of writing the preliminary material for a high school course teaching the use of LO.
The Getting Started Guide (GS50) cautions regarding “Changing Page Margins”:
If you change the margins, the new margins affect the page style and will be shown in the Page Style dialog the next time you open it.
Because the page style is affected, the changed margins apply to all pages using that style.
Originally, I had taken that to mean that if I changed the margins in any document, the page style in use would be affected in any other document (existing or new) using that same page style.
Apparently that’s not what it means. (Judging by how Writer behaves for me.)
I gather the above caution has to do only with the existing document and not with any other. If I gather correctly, it seems it’d be beneficial to make the official documentation more clear on this point. (You know, for the benefit of people like me. grin)
Anyway, I’m posting this here, hoping to get some confirmation or correction on this matter.
Thanks for reading this.
