Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Why new page style after manual page
break changes all pages?
To: Sean Darcy <>

By design, a Page Style will normally affect the entire document. If
you want to have different parts of the document use different Page
Styles, I would suggest that you create Sections. Each section can
have its own Page Style.

I have never had this problem and have never had the need to create sections. Maybe it's because I always use page styles alternating from right page to left page and back. For instance, I begin a book with a page style called "Title", marked as right page only and set the next page style to "Copyright". I set the Copyright style to left page only and the next style as FrontMatterRight. I set the FrontMatterRight style to right page only and next style as FrontMatterLeft and set the FrontMatterLeft style to left page only and next style to FrontMatterRight. This puts me in a loop, and to break out of the loop I insert a manual page break and check the option to change the style. I also set the FrontMatter styles to use lower case roman numerals for page numbering and I can change the page numbering at the same time as I break out of the loop with the insert manual page break.

I find this necessary because I set my margins on right pages to have a larger margin on the left and on left pages to have a larger margin on the right. This is for binding purposes.
