A odt-File with 8 Pages. Firs and second Page miss some lines and Checkboxes, all following show in right way

Problem description:

In this Serial Letter are lines, and Forms (Checkboxes).

Hi rethus,
thanks for the report. I did not check with a merge boot took a look at the file.
Can you pls try this when you anchor the various elements in the header or the text of the page? Now they are anchored to the page, and I would expect that causes the problem. Regards,
Comment 2 rethus 2013-06-20 13:48:44 UTC
If does this the Problem, why only in the first Dataset?
and can you explain what exactly you mean... where to anchor the Elements?!

I didn't see what you mean.

@Rethus - can you give us a complete test package to use including a database for address-dataset.

Marking as NEEDINFO - please provide a zip with a complete test kit (odt + db to connect to) and then explain step 3 please "print more than one address set" -- how do we do this? The clearer the steps the easier it is for us to test.


Once you provide an attachment please set the bug to UNCONFIRMED. Apologies for the long delay, this is a bit of a tricky one to confirm.

I have a similar problem with the first page when printing serial letters: If I use a document with landscape format the first page is printed (and shown in the preview) as portrait if there is a header on that page. Otherwise it is printed correctly.

Hi ma_ridinger,

Thanks for confirming, but pls read the comment before changing version (and then do not change it ;) )
Cheers - Cor
