technical manual template with 3 important pages shown

dear developers,
my bug report seems closest to 74791.

i am stumped. I have a template i worked on for months, working fine in 3.5, 3.6, 4.05.
But upgrading LO to 4.06, 4.1x or 4.2x leaves me with headers that have the logo copied.
In, a logo is placed on the right side of one page.
And the same logo is placed on the left-side of the opposite page.

I need 3 different page layouts with left-right orientation, and 2 page layouts with right-only orientation, all set accordingly.

But in any of the higher versions, the left-page shows the logo twice in the header.
In I tried to use the template to create a document, fix all pages with the double-logo in the header, save the document, save that document as template, create a new document with the new fixed template and voila, again double-logo on left-page.

I see this behavior in Windows version as well.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

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 on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
   (5.0.5 or 5.1.0)  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

   If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
   your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
   If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave 
   a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

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)


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: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

Thank you for your help!
