Hi,

I am having real trouble trying to get the First Page function to work on OOo Writer. I've gone into Styles and Formatting>Page Styles>First Page>Modify and tried every way I can think of to get the first page headers and footers to be different to that of the other pages.

Does anyone have any tips? The Help function is not that helpful.

Cheers
K

Is Next style (Organizer tab) set to another Page style? If so, it shouldn't be a problem - unless you save in MS Word format. Do you?

Just after posting it a colleague showed me that all I needed to do was double-click First Page in order to seperate the header/footer from the other pages.

Cheers

Very Happy Obviously you have to assign that page style to your first page, or it won't work.
