How can I have portrait headers for a landscape page? I found out a few links (for example this one) which are very old. They suggest to use text text boxes. Is there any better solution at the moment?

Thanks.

The other way is to leave the page as portrait, but rotate the table (or landscape text) by putting it inside a frame and changing the text direction. The suggested method of using a text frame for the header is better IMO as you don't get a stiff neck when trying to edit the landscape page. You can now insert (page number or Chapter) fields in Text Frames.

If you want this on several pages then you can open a header and insert a frame in it. In the frame dialog make sure Follow Text Flow is not checked then the frame can be dragged where need and its text rotated (Format > Characters > Position tab).

If it makes you feel any better, Word has to do it that way too. Seems to be part of the challenge when using a word processor to try to handle page layout.

I have landscape pages and I want headers and footers as in portrait pages. I wan odd an even pages to have different content. Do I have to insert it manually (doing it for one and copy-paste for the rest) on every page?

This would be very tedious and adding or deleting a page before would mean all the headers will have to change.

What exactly do you mean? Header and footer text rotated? See the suggestions above. Also see http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=10787&hilit=+header#p151034

Yes, I need text rotated in headers and footers.
The solution to do it automaticly for each page is to anchor the frames that contain the actual header and footer to a header -or footer- on a landscape page. God thanks! That will save me a precious amount of time and will make the document look good!!
Thanks for the link!!!!

PS: Anyway i would like to have different headers dependin on the page position (left/ritght) and this is not possible this way.

On the Header or Footer tab, dependent on where you want to anchor the frame, un-tick Same content left/right.

So simply! Thanks a lot flors_v!

I was already thinking about conditional format, using variables (page number), mod function...

PS: I cannot mark this as SOLVED, as I didn't post it originally

sorry, but one more question. Is there a simple way to align "right" (or center) the rotated text? I thought about inserting another smaller frame on the right (center) position of the header frame.
[EDITED]
I aligned right by inserting another frame inside the header and
anchor to paragraph
position
horizontal center to paragraph area
vertical bottom to entire page
(checked) follow text flow

I don't really know - it's quite messy. You may have to experiment a bit or do it the hard way by calculating the correct positions yourself.
