Page Break Visible

I'm just assuming that this was inherited.

Bodhi Moksha (Linux)
Build ID: d534e939d4b9c8ac09cd1e7e28e5ad43d1ee56ec
CPU Threads: 2; OS Version: Linux 3.16; UI Render: default; 
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8)

1. Open writer;
2. Insert footnote and write some text;
3) Get the document to two pages (hold enter for awhile);
4) Double click on the section between the pages to hide the page break

Observed: The footnote is hidden
Expected: The footnote is not hidden

Further note: The real problem is that the text shifts when you do this and it can show that you have more space then you actually do.

Attaching the same document with and without hidden page break. Go to the end and see that with the page break hidden it shows that there are a few more lines to write on, with it shown, it's at the end of the page.

Apparently page break hiding isn't retained during save (separate bug). 

To See Problem:
1. open page break visible
2. Scroll to bottom

Observed: No additional lines on page 6

3. Scroll up between page 5 and 6
4. Double click to hide page breaks
5. Scroll down

Observed: There now appears to be a few extra lines to write but that is incorrect.

Hiding the space between pages (menu View) is new in 5.2.0.

Dear Joel Madero,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
