Hi :)
There is a Templates site with almost exactly the same name as the Extensions site.  Whichever you 
are on you might notice the tabs at the top to let you switch from Extensions to Templates or 
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi all,

Is it the case that a document **must* *end with a paragraph mark. I am editing a publication 
which is a master document and I would like to specify that for a given sub-document I wish to 
have nothing below it on the page but when I insert a page break I am given another page with a 
blank paragraph which I do not want. I am aware of the possibility of specifying that a 
document must start a fresh page, but I have tried that in the past and introduced a 
non-deletable feature in the master document.

Any thoughts?

      Yes, all documents **must** end with a paragraph mark. Writer documents are written using 
XML. The "markers" used to format the text are used in pairs. If there is a beginning of a 
paragraph, there must be an ending of it. The paragraph markers only visually show you where the 
paragraphs begin and end.
      I just created a master document from 4 chapters that I have. (Total pages: 212) In the 
master document, nothing is below the end of a given chapter; the next chapter begins with on a 
new page. And if the subdocument ended as an odd page in the master document, a blank page was 
added so that the new chapter begins as an odd page.
      How did you create the master document? If we had your steps, someone might be able to 
discover what has to be done differently.


If this is not out of line, how about we get people to share their "favorite" master 
document-templates with the rest of us.  The trick of adding sub documents and automatically 
having the next chapters start on an odd page is nice to know how to do.

There are a lot of people out there that have created master documents that could be used as 
template-documents by others so that they do not have to figure out all the needed information on 
their own.

Actually, I never did figure out how to make a master document that used sub-documents 
[chapters/sections] using LO.  I tried back in first year of using LO and then gave up.  It seemed 
easier to edit individual chapters/sections of a large document than edit a 50plus page one.

ALSO, as for ending a document, I always have one or two blank lines after my last paragraph of 
text.  That is what I was taught in college [and work] in thelate 80's and early 90's, so I never 
got out of the habit of doing it.
