Writer let the user change the page number when inserting a manual page break. It would be helpful to also be able to change the page count on manual page break.

I mark this enhancement of course as 'valid'. Can't find any duplicates so far.
This is a really important enhancement request. In other bug this was also requested, e.g. in bug 108786 comment 2.
