1. What's your screen size and resolution (most of the time)?
2. What paper format do you use?
3. Do you work in full-screen?
4. Do you use any multi-page mode (for instance two pages in one screen?

My responses:
1. 23" / 1920 * 1080
2. A4 (sometimes A5) mostly portrait in Writer, landscape in Calc
3. Sometimes.
4. Yes, often comparing texts, translating, versioning.


@RGB ES/Mirek:
Which page number? The "physical" page number, the "printed" page number, both?
At least on Writer it is quite common that page 1 is the "physical"
page 7, for example.
I vote for "both" ;)

I'm there with Mirek voting for only physical page number. It's seems
more useful for e.g. finding out on which page you are or finding a
print range. As Mirek said, the printed page number is also displayed
on the doument itself. Nevertheless there are a few other solutions
* make it configurable (which would be lowest common denominator, but
given that LibO already has so many knobs, buttons and screws this
seems a bad solution
* present both, but only if they _differ_, with the "printed" value
smaller and below the "physical" value.

I recall a complex report I once (ages ago) had to manage in MSWord; with appendixes in Roman numerals, lots of independently numbered sections, indexes and stuff. Quite a mess, and the poor program choked regularly on the page ranges (renumbering the sections). Getting around was not easy, I would have liked indicators of both 'nominal' page number and 'real/physical' page number. Both in the status bar and as tooltip on the scrollbar.

Something like: [nominal - physical / total]
e.g:  xvii - 56/264 and  3 - 59/264

Hope you get the idea from my meager explanation, maybe it's too complicated anyway.

Best regards,
