A cautionary note which I hope someone else will find useful.

Using LO in UbuntuStudio 2204 LTS I came upon a conflict between two methods of inserting 
lines to separate page text from footers.

My exercise was what appeared a simple task, to edit an older document to increase the line width 
from the default 0.05pt to 0.75pt in order to improve visibility when printing. It didn't take long 
to find that I had long been ignorant of the existence of two methods of defining a border line:
1. editing the page style, Footer tab, select 'More...'
2. editing a footer paragraph style

My awakening happened when I saw that on some pages I had two lines above the footer with a very 
small spacing between them - each of the methods has its own positioning of the border line above 
the footer. (Playing with the 'padding' doesn't affect the positioning of the line.)

Editing took a little longer than I had expected but at the end, I was still left with a 'page 
style footer' border line on one page style that I could not modify. It remained as a 'ghost' and 
only vanished when I turned off the footer on that page style and then turned it back on and remade 
that footer from scratch.

All goes to show that even after years of use, there are still things to discover.
