ODF New Proposal Template


Proposal owner:

Florian Reuter

Proposal short name:

Add "style:header-first" (style:footer-first) similar to "style:header-left" (style:footer-left).


Use cases:

Sometimes users want different header/footer not only on left/right pages, but also on the first page.

If the style:header-first/style:footer-first is present, then the fist page with which the master-page is rendered get the header/footer defined by style:header-first resp. style:footer-first.

Alternatives considered:

There is often more than one way to accomplish a task.  For your use case, what other alternatives did you consider, and why did you find them inadequate?
