I have compiled a bilingual dictionary and am having lots of trouble trying to format it in LO Writer as well as in AOO Writer. What I want to accomplish is having a field at the top of the page, left justified on left pages (even numbered) and right justified on right pages (odd numbered). On left pages, this field would contain the first word on that page and on right pages, this field would contain the last word on that page. This is quite common for dictionaries of all types.

Unfortunately, the header cannot be used for this short of having a separate style for every page in the book (over 300). I have also tried putting these search words on the first text line of the page and then beginning the text two or three lines below that. Then, if any modification results in an additional line, every subsequent page must be modified.

Maybe I'm missing something. If anyone knows of a solution to this, I would certainly appreciate knowing about it.
