Description Martin Rinehart 2018-08-15 11:15:54 UTC
I write for 6x9 trade paperback format. I write with four-abreast pages on a 24" monitor, mostly 11pt type. I make four pages fit by cutting the left and right margins to 0.1 inches, zoomed to 4-column, book mode. Really nice, BTW.

I use chapter first, left and right pages, TOC first, left and right pages and a handful of other page styles for front and back matter.

With inheritance it would be a simple matter of changing 'default page' from it's 4.2" working width to its finished 6" width. Without inheritance I have to individually style my ten or so pages styles.

Actual Results:
I'll be able to switch easily from draft format to finished format (and back again).

Expected Results:
Happy camper author!

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Looking for'd to getting a 4K monitor and viewing three rows of 8 pages each. For me that's a full chapter at a time!

Such inheritance for page styles is currently not supported by the file format. LibreOffice could introduce such feature in its own namespace.

The request already exists, see bug 41316.
