Re: [libreoffice-users] how do I delete a page in libreoffice?


Thanks to all who took the time to reply.

I will try to answer everyone in a single email.

0. Apologies for the insufficiently detailed question. The pages I wish to
delete are
(as far as I can tell) entirely blank. I know how to delete text and
images from a page.

1. The problem I am experiencing is apparently because on the last page,
there
is a picture and some text anchored to the page. Libreoffice is apparently
capable
of making a document longer when the content expands and there is an anchor
on the last page, but incapable of removing blank pages if the content
shrinks. The
person I work with on this project told me to cut (remove) the content from
the last
page, and then paste on an earlier page, and then I would be able to delete
the
blank pages at the end of the document.

2. I fully comprehend the difference between pixels and character locations
on a page
of text, but since there are no characters, and no defined font or anything
else, the
only way I could think of to express the concept of "everywhere on the
page" was to
use "pixels" as a unit. Also, the need to precisely click on the gray
border of a "text
frame" to be able to delete it tells me than pixel-level precision is
necessary to run
LibreOffice Writer.

3. my "signature" line about malware and Linux is only a response to the
"scanned by
Avast (etc.)" lines I see on so many incoming emails. The chance of
my emails having malware is vanishingly small; I think the signature line
is close enough
to 100% accurate as makes no difference, not least because there is
probably NO email
propagated malware targeting Linux.

This email is free of malware because I run Linux.
