Description NISZ LibreOffice Team 2021-06-11 08:28:30 UTC
Created attachment 172796 [details]
attachment 86234 [details] in Word after enabling the first page header

This is a followup to bug 69635
When the example file attachment 86234 [details] is opened in Writer the hidden first page header/footer cannot be re-enabled, but the hidden even page header/footer can.

Steps to reproduce:
1.	Open attachment 86234 [details] in Writer
2.	Go to Format – Page Style
3.	On the Header tab or Footer tab uncheck “Same content on first page”
4.	Press Apply

Actual results:
The first page header does not change.
Unchecking “Same content on left and right pages” however works as expected: the second pages header becomes the green “EVEN header”

Expected results:
The first page header should change from the blue “ODD header” to the red “FIRST header”.
This should match the behavior of Word when the Header and Footer ribbons “First page different” box is checked.
Saving the file in Writer and opening that also changes the behavior of Word so that the “FIRST header” does not appear there.

I confirm the behaviour, but not sure, if I understand the problem. So just for clarification: There was a first page header before. it is hidden in the actual document, because "Same content on first page" is enabled. Previous header should reappear, if you disable that option, corect?

Yes, unchecking the "Same content on left and right pages" box enables (sometimes- see bug 142785) the hidden green EVEN header on the second page, and unchecking "Same content on first page" should enable the hidden red FIRST header on the first page, similar to what happens in Word.

Thank you for your answer

I imagine that this is because "first page" typically gets moved into the "first page style" during DOCX import. So probably depends on bug 136472.
