In the last decade, there have been roughly a dozen requests to various
mailing lists for a feature along those lines. Usually, but not always,
it is related to dictionary construction.
The workarounds I'm aware of, have placed either the first word of the
first new paragraph, or the first word of the last paragraph of the
previous page, in the page header.
One workaround also managed to place the last word of the page in the
header field, but it required:
* Triple Spacing between paragraphs;
* Manually setting things for every page;
* Manually changing things every time there was any textual _or_
formatting changes anywhere in the document;
I just glanced through the "fields" dialogs and nothing jumped out at me.
It is done by a combination of styles, and outline headers.
(Incidentally this use case is one of the reasons why there should LibO
should allow users to construct more than ten levels of headers.)
