Creating and Applying Page Styles
LibreOffice uses page styles to specify the layout of a page, including the page orientation, background, margins, headers, footers, and text columns. To change the layout of an individual page in a document, you must create and apply a custom page style to the page.
To Define a New Page Style
- Choose Format - Styles and Formatting .
- Click the Page Styles icon.
- In the list of page styles, right-click an item, and then choose New.
- On the Organizer tab, type a name in the Name box.
- Do one of the following:
- To apply the custom page style to a single page, select the default page style that is used in your document in the Next Style box.
- To apply the custom page style to more than one page, select its name in the Next Style box. To stop using the style, insert a manual page break and assign it a different page style.
- Use the tabs in the dialog to set the layout options for the page style, and then click OK.
To Apply a Page Style
- Click in the page that you want to apply the page style to.
- Choose Format - Styles and Formatting, and then click the Page Style icon.
- Double-click a name in the list.
To Apply a Page Style to a New Page
- Click in the document where you want a new page to start.
- Choose Insert - Manual Break.
- Select Page break.
- In the Style box, select the page style that you want to apply to the page that follows the manual break.
- Click OK.
