I have a word document containing section breaks (somewhere in the pages, without causing page breaks). When transformed to PDF with LibreOffice, these sections breaks cause page breaks. I just would like to know if this is a known issue and whether there are workarounds.

What version of LibreOffice are you using? We have done some quick tests with the latest release of LibreOffice and there's no page break adding continuous section breaks.

If you send to contact[at] the DOCX we'll check it.

The version number is

LibreOffice 430(Build:2)

I'll send examples to the given email address referencing topic number 1733.

Thanks for sending the files. The problem is that the version of LibreOffice you are using is too old. Please upgrade to the latest release of LibreOffice ( and the issue will be solved.
