LO3.5 Writer - page reformat problem

Hello

I am getting frustrated with a reformat problem in Writer 3.5.

Each time I place a graphic in frame and set the anchor for the graphic or adjust the frame size, the frame immediately jumps to the next page and the text below the frame jumps to the next page. The only way to get the pages to reformat is save, close the document and then re-open the document.

Does anybody know a solution or is this a bug in LO3.5? This did not happen in LO3.4.

Regards

Peter

Re: LO3.5 Writer - page reformat problem

Hi :)
Is this anything to do with the weird bug that occasionally happens when "Autosave" is on?  Can you switch autosave off and see if the problem keeps happening?  Also what are the wrap options for the figure?
Regards from
Tom :)

Re: LO3.5 Writer - page reformat problem

Hello Tom

Autosave is switched off because this helps with the missing graphics problem (Jean's idea). Even with Autosave switched, the problem is there.

Wrap for frames is None as I am using the template for LO user guides.

I have even tried using Tools > Update > Update All to see if the pages reformat, but to no avail.

Re: LO3.5 Writer - page reformat problem

Peter,
Is this a general problem, or did it suddenly show up with a particular file?

I haven't been using LO 3.5, but I could give it a try to see what
happens for me.

Hello Jean

This is a general problem and has happened with other files, including files not for LibreOffice.

Re: LO3.5 Writer - page reformat problem

I just got the announcement of LO 3.5.2, bug fix release. Perhaps that
will cure the problem? (One can hope!)

Re: LO3.5 Writer - page reformat problem

Hello Jean

Looks like LO 3.5.2 has cured the problem, but needs further testing. More on this when I start Chap 08 of the Impress Guide.

Re: LO3.5 Writer - page reformat problem

Hello

Updating to LO3.5.2 has NOT solved the page reformat problem of extra space being added when you add a new figure frame or when you edit an existing figure frame. The only improvement is that the frame being worked on no longer jumps to the next page, space is just added below.

My solution at the moment is to place the cursor next to the frame paragraph symbol and press the delete key. This brings the following paragraph up to the frame. I press the Enter key to recreate the paragraph and reformat the following paragraph to the correct style.
