Hi :)
You are not yet thinking in the LO way.  The modules/apps (such as Writer, Calc, Draw) are not 
separate programs in the way you seem to be trying to use them.  This is very different from MS 
Office.  With MSO if you open 2 of the apps then you pretty much double the amount of space taken 
up in Ram and double the resources used.  

Why not just create the page-breaks in Draw?  Even if you do get the Pdf into Writer and save as an 
Odt rather than an Odg it still doesn't become any more editable than it is as an Odg.  Pdf is made 
to be uneditable.  That is part of it's aim.  It's because it is uneditable that it appears the 
same on every machine or printer in any OS or program that displays Pdf, or at least that's the 

You might find it helpful to skim quickly through the "Getting Started Guide" and see if soem 
things in there catch your eye
Regards from 
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Importing image from LO Draw (ODG) to Writer

I had a one page PDF file that I wanted to break into multiple pages. Opening
the PDF with LO resulted in LO Draw opening with the file nicely displayed. I
saved it as a draw image (odg) and then expected to be able to directly
import it to Writer. Unfortunately I could find no way to do that. Even using
copy/paste resulted in a black page since the image was larger than one page.
My hope was to have it come in and naturally break into multiple pages. As a
last resort I selected a portion of the image in Draw , copy/pasted it into
Writer, inserted a page break then repeated the action on multiple pages
until the entire image was in Writer. It seems as if there must be a more
elegant way to do this. I have never used Draw before so I'm just trying to
figure out the details. To be useful it seems as if there must be an easy way
to move from Draw into Writer or Calc. Can someone help me see what I'm
missing?  Thanks.
