Working with page styles
In Writer, page styles define the basic layout of pages, including page size, margins, headers and footers, borders and backgrounds, number of columns, and so on.
Writer comes with several page styles, which you can modify as you wish, and you can define your own. You can have one or many page styles in a single document.
All pages in a Writer document are based on styles. If you do not specify a page style, Writer uses the Default page style.
To change the layout of individual pages, either define a new page style or use one of the techniques (sections, frames, or tables) described in Chapter 4, â€œFormatting Pagesâ€.
This section describes one use of page styles. Other uses are discussed in Chapter 6, â€œIntroduction to Stylesâ€, and Chapter 4, â€œFormatting Pagesâ€.
Any modifications of page styles, including the Default page style, apply only to the document you are working on. If you want the changes to be the default for all documents, you need to put the changes into a template and make that template the default template. See Chapter 10, â€œWorking with Templatesâ€, for details.
