I have spent this morning trying to resolve this issue. When I centre my heading the whole page of text centres.
First this is what my page is about. I have copied several pages of text from Grammerly and pasted into an odt. I have a title (verdana 14), an image, and 5 pages of text forming a chapter in a book. This is the fourth chapter. I have performed the same task on the previous chapters without an issue.
On the fourth chapter after pasting in the text from Grammmerly I found I could not centre the title without the whole body of the text then centres.
Obvious next action was to look on the forums in Google. I have spent this morning going patiently through the forum answers but without a resolution.
I have been through Styles and Formatting and cannot find a resolution there. I have been through the View menu without resolution. All of the fixes in the forums I have tried to apply but without result. On looking at the page showing markers and web formats I can see the correct returns in place. I can see the page breaks. I cannot see anything that looks out of place.
One thing that is strange is that if I press return in front of the first line of the chapter text then it jumps to a new page. This is also so if I press shift/return.
Any help whatsoever on clearly identifying this issue so I can work through and correct would be greatly appreciated.
