Description nvhorst 2017-05-24 06:47:23 UTC
My document have some sections that must start on odd pages with new page numbering.
It is than need to insert page break with new page style staring on the right or left page and change page numbering to "1".
You can do this from menu: menu>insert>manual page break, choose new pagestyle and tick the box to change page number to "1".
it is impossible to get the same result when executing above steps in recorded macro because page numbering is continued despite setting PageNumber value.

Below is the code "tools>macro>record>"

dim args5(2) as new
args5(0).Name = "Kind"
args5(0).Value = 3
args5(1).Name = "TemplateName"
args5(1).Value = "Left Page"
args5(2).Name = "PageNumber"
args5(2).Value = 1 // THIS VALUE WILL NOT BE SET!
dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:InsertBreak", "", 0, args5())
