Description 1000dead 2011-07-09 04:37:53 UTC
In Libreoffice Draw you can adjust the 'Paper format' size to such things as A4, A3 and user specified up to a maximum size of 300.00cm by 300.00. For some situations this is too small. To be able to increase the maximum page setup size would help greatly

As an example: I created test .odg file with the maximum size of 300cm by 300cm. I then saved this file and unpacked it with a basic zip program. I located and edited the style.xml file within, changing just the line page-width="300.00cm" to  page-width="3000cm". I then repacked the file and opened this in libreoffice draw. This now gives a greatly improved page size to work with. The simply hack seems to work fine and I can edit and save as normal. However, of course I can not export an image of the working file as Draw will only show the working area of no bigger than 300cm x 300cm.

So can the maximum page size be officially increased?

Thank you

This is a Draw issue, therefore changed 'Component' field accordingly.

This seems just to be a limitation of the UI, since one can manually edit an .odg file to make the page size bigger, and LODraw opens it fine. I tried making the width and height 609.6 centimeters (~20 ft) and it opened perfectly fine.

Remains unresolved in v5.3.0.3 (on Windows 8.1 x64)
Comment 8 Randolph 2020-01-24 17:02:05 UTC
In version 6.3.42, Windows 8.1, I can now set a maximum page size of 600.00cm x 600.00cm.

In version, Windows 10-64, I can now set a maximum page size of 600.00cm x 600.00cm too.
so the problem is partly solved in windows.

factor 100
60m x 60m for large building walls paintings is a good limit

other programs have limits in km
inkscape 1000 km x 1000 km

Comment 10 paulystefan 2020-04-03 18:36:32 UTC
but next request is more than 600 cm x 600 cm.
Comment 11 paulystefan 2020-08-14 00:29:24 UTC
with small diplays the problem is ui with maximum decrease factor of 5 percent.

So work array needed of 30 cm x 30 cm to see whole 600 cm x 600 cm work space.

with export to pdf, a later increase with a pdf program is possible.

In acrobat reader a scale of 9999%  is possible.
So with A0 as basic format free pdf printer 
a poster with 600 meter to 600 meter  with thousands of sides is possible.
