header footer error

This file is maked with LO6. It contains different header and footer with first page and another pages. When it opened in LO 5.3.4 or older then you see only default header and footer. If it opened in LO 5.3.6 or newer then you can see both first page and default header/footer. You can save this file with 5.3.6 and newer but not in 6 to correctly open in any version of LO.

Comment 2 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2018-03-01 14:09:05 UTC
this was an intentional change for bug 109080 because the used element
name was not valid, but the patch to read the valid name is only
in 5.3.6, not older versions.

so we should delay this another release cycle and write
the valid name only in LO 6.1.
