Description Andreas J Guelzow 2011-06-19 22:12:32 UTC
Created attachment 48176 [details]
sample file

According to ODF 1.2, the <style:header> element has a style:display attribute specifying whether the header or footer is displayed or not. The default value for this attribute is true. (See ODF 1.2 Part 1, 19.471)

The attached file has
    <style:master-page style:name="tamp-0x899f740" style:page-layout-name="pl-default">
        <style:region-left><text:p><text:span>Page </text:span><text:page-number style:num-format="1"/></text:p>        </style:region-left>
        <style:region-center><text:p><text:sheet-name/></text:p>        </style:region-center>
        <style:region-right><text:p><text:span>Date: </text:span><text:date style:data-style-name="ND.0"/></text:p>        </style:region-right>
        <style:region-left><text:p><text:expression text:display="formula" text:formula="of:=[.$A$1]"/></text:p>        </style:region-left>
        <style:region-center><text:p><text:span>Page </text:span><text:page-number style:num-format="1"/><text:span> of </text:span><text:page-count style:num-format="1"/></text:p>        </style:region-center>
        <style:region-right><text:p><text:file-name text:display="name-and-extension"/></text:p>        </style:region-right>
and although this is read by LibreOffice calc the header and footer are initially hidden.

Status of this bug report has been modified wrongly by a bulk change. 
No additional info is required, but someone with ODF knowledge to confirm reporter's complaint.
Comment 4 sasha.libreoffice 2012-04-11 03:16:32 UTC
Thanks for bugreport

http://odf-validator.rhcloud.com/ complains in this file only about this:
unexpected attribute "gnm:GnmHAlign"
So, nothing about header and footer. So, IMHO problem not in attached file.
msOffice 2007 on Windows 7 opens this file with header and footer initially.
Attached file created in gnumeric/1.10.17. So, we can do some additional experiments with Gnumeric when needed.
Comment 5 Andreas J Guelzow 2012-05-15 14:23:39 UTC
Regarding comment #4: 
http://odf-validator.rhcloud.com/ complains in this file only about
unexpected attribute "gnm:GnmHAlign"
only for OASIS ODF 1.2 (conforming), not for
OASIS ODF 1.2 (extended conforming).

OASIS ODF 1.2 allows for foreign attributes and foreign elements in the extended conforming class.

Still reproducible in

I noticed that even I enabled the header, added something in the middle block and removed another 2 blocks, and saved with this version, the style:header attribute became

<style:header><text:p>Book1 <text:date style:data-style-name="N2" text:date-value="2019-11-23">0000/00/00</text:date></text:p></style:header><style:header-left style:display="false"/>

No style:display="true" either.

This is likely fixed with commits for bug 121715 and bug 144940. Please test with a current daily build.

I checked the file with print preview and PDF export and did not see header or footer.

Dear Andreas J Guelzow,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
