I'm wondering if there is a way to define a field as the first word on the page and the last word on the page (like in a dictionary). If that could be done, then the desired information could be placed in a header, as Dale wants to do. That would obviate the manual gymnastics that he's trying to do.

I just glanced through the "fields" dialogs and nothing jumped out at me.

Er, there have been five responses to your message (all archived on the web). You may not have liked them, but it's not true that no-one answered.

I think it must surely be a bug and I might file a bug report later.

I suspect you'll be told that subdocument text is meant to be reformatted according to the master document's insistence. Isn't that the function of the master document?

I am attempting now to copy all the files into one large document with the hope that I can circumvent the problem in that way, but it's a lot of work.

You may find that improving the structure of your subdocuments obviates this. What you are now doing is merely choosing not to use the master document functionality.

I am a little embarrassed by all this because I had quite a bit of opposition to using OpenOffice back at the start of this project.

I think we are talking about LibreOffice, in fact. And I suspect that it will do what you need.

I trust this helps.
