Hi Charles,

I'm not sure if it was intentional or not, but your reply went to me
instead of the list. This can happen with some email clients that don't
correctly identify the list headers. Or something like that; there have
been lengthy discussions in the past about why this happens and what
should be done about it, but the general consensus I think is that the
LO mailing list is doing the "correct" thing, and certain email clients
are causing a little extra work for some people.

I hope you don't mind, but I replied to the list; keeping the
discussion here helps others.

Comments below.

I have created 2 documents in Writer - one a jpg

This may only be a terminology difference, but I don't think you can
create jpg files in Writer. You can create odt files, and embed jpg
files in them, which seems to be what you have done.

in which I added a 2nd page by Ctrl/Enter where I inserted a file
image I needed to re-size and then drag onto the first page.

So if I'm following you correctly, you created a new document in
Writer, created a second page by pressing ctrl-enter, inserted an image
onto the second page, resized it, dragged it to the first page, and now
want to get rid of the second page, which is blank. Is that correct?

If so, where does the second document that you said you created come in
to the picture?

Now that image is situated on page one I wish to delete page two I
created (Ctrl/Enter) in Writer - how does one now delete or remove the
2nd page?

If I'm correct above, then it should be a simple case of clicking on
the second page to put the cursor on to that page, then pressing
backspace until the page disappears.

Out of interest, if I am correct so far, why are you doing this in
Writer, if all you want is an image? What do you want to do with that
image? Because so far I see no reason why you are using Writer at all,
you could simply keep the original jpg file as it is, but that depends
on what you ultimately want to do with it, and it could be that Draw is
better suited to your needs. Or you may not need to do anything to the
jpg file, and could use it as it is.

Hope this helps.


Thank you!

Hi Charles,

I'm afraid there is some confusion here:

I have a 2 page document (opened as a .jpg) in Libre Writer
If the file is a .jpg, it's not a document, it's a picture, and should
then open in LibreOffice Draw, not Writer. If it is a document, and
opened in Writer, it should not be a .jpg.

but I can't seem to find how I would delete the 2nd page so I can
save the document as one page.
If this is a document, then you don't delete "pages", you delete the
contents (which is just text, formatted in one way or another), until
there is only enough to fit on a single page. If there is too much
content, Writer will automatically make it go onto the next page.

Of course, you can make the font of the text smaller (and maybe the
margins wider and that sort of thing), so that with the same content,
it takes up less space and perhaps fits on a single page.

If you really have a .jpg file, an image, then it should not open in
Writer, it should open in Draw. Unless you are trying to insert the
picture into a text document. In either case if the image is so large
that it takes up two pages, then you should be able to resize the
image to fit on one page.

This makes the image itself smaller, so may not be what you want.
Instead, you may want to edit the image in Draw and remove some of the
contents of the image, so that it takes up less space and fits on one

All this depends on what you want to achieve. Are you trying to get
what you currently have small enough to fit on a single page, or are
you trying to remove some of what you currently have, so that what
you are left with is small enough to fit on one page?

Your question was a little confusing, so I thought it best to explain
in detail; please ignore any of the above that you already know.
Hopefully some of what I've said is new and gives you the hint you
need to figure out how to solve your problem.
