Re: [libreoffice-users] Empty spaces in master documents...

A while ago I posted what is below and didn't see any replies. No problem because there is no real problem, with an ugly workaround. However, I am wondering if I am the only person struggling with master documents.

Hi everyone

For some manuals I use master documents with satellites in Writer.

After opening such a file it always contains empty spaces and even empty
pages. It took a while to figure out how to get rid of these layout errors.

What I do:
* Open document
* Update index
* Update selection for every satellite (using navigator)
* Update index again
* Export to PDF for printing and distribution

To get an idea I've temporary placed the following screen dumps on
http://media.vanderworp.org/.dot/.lo/ :


This solution is highly complex and unfriendly (some of these masters
contain a lot satellites), I consider not properly calculating the
layout a bug.

The documents themselves have strict style rules and only contain
bitmaps and svg's.

I can live with this solution but... Are there better solutions?
