Using LO 184.108.40.206 Writer
While I was having the recent difficulty with getting graphics to stick in a template, I prepared a
short document copy/pasting header and footer graphics into a Writer document as I went along.
During this work, there was a moment when adjusting the position of a footer graphic on the page,
the graphic disappeared completely. I had no idea why or where it had gone and just supposed I had
slipped and clicked in a wrong place.
When the document was finished, I exported to pdf to check that the hyperlinks in the footer
graphics were working as they should. To my surprise, I found in the pdf, right in the centre of a
single page, an upside down hyperlink that also worked ok. It was a text box from the graphic I had
This corruption was not visible in the Writer odt document, only in the pdf. Deleting the page only
made the corruption appear on the next one. Being invisible in Writer, I couldn't find any way to
If deleting a page "only made the corruption appear on the next" page; that suggest corruption linked with
header or footer. Did you try changing Page style (Insert > More Breaks > Manual Break > Page Break, Style)
before deleting the page with corruption?
The page style I was using had both header and footer OFF ( at least, not selected ON). But I did
just try your idea of changing the page style just before the corrupted page. The new page
inherited the corruption but only as long as it stayed in that place in the document. If I moved
the new page down with the navigator, then the corruption did not move with the page. Suggests the
corruption is in a fixed spot in the document.
Were the elements not at all visible in Navigator? Did you try examining in an XML editor? (First
save the file in FODT (Flat ODT) format or unzip the ODT file to examine content.xml.)
Nothing visible in the Navigator.
Yes, following your suggestion, I've had a look in an xml text editor both flat ODT and content.xml
and I can't see the corruption. I'm not saying it isn't there but life moves on and this cannot
absorb more time.
