I'm exporting ODT files to PDF, but I want to export only 1 page at a

I've been searching, but since somewhere around 3-4am EST, I have not
been able to access and most links lead to there.

I can't find examples elsewhere that show me how to export a PDF file
from in BASIC or how to specify, again, from BASIC, what pages to export.

Can anyone give me links for examples that are not on
Or tell me what classes I would be using for this so I can look them
up in the IDL to find out how to specify the page (or pages) to export
and how to use the PDF exporter?

Thank you.


If you need a single pdf for every page of your document it's better to create a single pdf and 
then separate every page with an external program specialized in this.

I haven't been able to get back to this for a while.

So I have to ask why one would say this?  In many cases the purpose of doing something from a macro 
inside LibreOffice is to have an integrated solution so one doesn't depend on having to run 
external programs.

I've been looking into this and this is quite possible - granted, it took me about 6-8 hours to 
find all the details, but it's possible.  I'll be posting a sample within the next few days.

It just seems to me saying it's better to do something else is a "can't do" attitude that defeats 
much of what one would want to do with macros.
