Result of steps 1-5.
A multi-column section inserted in the page header treats column breaks as regular paragraph breaks. Disabling "Evenly distribute contents to all columns" moves all contents to column 1.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new Writer document
2. Insert -> Section... with 3 columns
3. Write "<CB>Test1<CB>Test2<B>Test3" in the section, where <CB> is a column break (Insert -> Manual Break... -> Column break) and <B> is a regular break. Column 1 should be empty, Column 2 should contain "Test1" and Column3 should contain "Test2<B>Test3".
4. Add a page header.
5. Repeat steps 2 & 3 with the section inserted in the header.
6. Now disable "Evenly distribute contents to all columns" for both sections. In the header, all text moves to column 1, while the body section is unaffected.
After step 5, "Test1" jumps to the left column, "Test2<B>Test3" jumps to the middle column. After step 6, all header text jumps to the left column.
The header section should behave the same as the body section.

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 (4.4.2 or later)
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

The bug is still present in LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 on Windows 8.1. No change in behavior.
This bug is caused by sw/source/core/layout/flowfrm.cxx IsColBreak() due to this clause in a while loop:
(!pPrev->IsInDocBody() && !m_rThis.IsInFly())
This line has been in *OpenOffice* since the very beginning of flowframe.cxx, so it is difficult to understand why this clause exists. Forcing it to be false (false && !prev->IsInDoc....) did not cause any unit test failures.
Justin Luth committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#76322 writer: allow column breaks in headers/footers
It will be available in 5.3.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
