For the scratch fanatics.. how you build something like this

1. Open the attached file
2. Select the yellow marked text
3. Format -> Paragraph -> Text flow tab
4. Check Insert Break
5. Check with page style -> Landscape
6. Press OK
7. Sidebar -> Default paragraph style -> Right click -> Modify
8. Text flow tab
9. Check insert break
10. Check with page style -> Pick say Index
11. Press OK

I'd call this a fake document. Nobody would define a page break on a default paragraph style.

Secondly, I can't replicate.  The first time I delete, I notice that the text "disappears" and now there is another page break followed by an empty page. Well, that is to be expected because the document has two page breaks. Delete the first page break and the contents join the first pages, and the page break you now see is the "second" break.

I've treid to follow steps from comment 2. There is no step about deleting a page break and no information about actual result and expected result after step 11.

The only thing I noticed ist, that with Format => Paragraph I can't insert a new page with a different page style.
