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?
1. 23" / 1920 * 1080
2. A4 (sometimes A5) mostly portrait in Writer, landscape in
4. Yes, often comparing texts, translating, versioning.
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.
