Description NISZ LibreOffice Team 2021-06-11 08:32:33 UTC
Created attachment 172798 [details]
attachment 86234 [details] after enabling the hidden footer, then the hidden header - good

This is a followup to bug #69635
When a Word document with hidden header/footer of even page type is opened, enabling both the header/footer sometimes does not work.

Steps to reproduce:
1.	Open attachment 86234 [details] 
2.	Go to Format – Page Style - Header
3.	Uncheck “Same content on left and right pages”
4.	Press Apply. The second pages header is changed to the green “EVEN header”
5.	Go to the Footer tab in the same dialog
6.	Uncheck “Same content on left and right pages”
7.	Press Apply. The second pages footer does NOT change to the green “EVEN header”
8.	Reload the file
9.	Go to Format – Page Style – Footer 
10.	Uncheck “Same content on left and right pages”
11.	Press Apply. The second pages footer now DOES change to the green “EVEN header”
12.	Go to the Header tab
13.	Uncheck “Same content on left and right pages”
14.	Press Apply. The second pages header is changed to the green “EVEN header”

Actual results:
As above.

Expected results:
The second pages hidden header/footer changes regardless of the order of turning off the “Same content on left and right pages” checkbox.
