Defining a different first page for a document
Many documents, such as letters and reports, have a first page that is different from the other pages in the document. For example, the first page of a letterhead typically has a different header, or the first page of a report might have no header or footer, while the other pages do. With OOo, you can define the page style for the first page and specify the style for the following pages to be applied automatically.
As an example, we can use the First Page and Default page styles that come with OOo. The figure below shows what we want to happen: the first page is to be followed by the default page, and all the following pages are to be in the Default page style. Details are in Chapter 4 (Formatting Pages) in the Writer Guide.
