I am using keepNext on headlines. I see it works correctly in word. But when using transformDocument to PDF the headline is still at the bottom of page. Is there a way to fix this?

I am using libreoffice as method.


Also from documenation:

keepNext bool Keeps (whenever possible) in the same page the current paragraph with next paragraph (default value is false).

But it looks like addHeading has default value "on"... so it is not Bool? And Default value is wrong. Please update docs. :)

What version of LibreOffice are you using? We have done some tests and keep next option is working correctly when transforming DOCX to PDF. If you send to contact[at] the most simple DOCX that illustrate your issue we'll check it.

Thanks for the warning about the documentation issue on the addHeading page, we have removed the wrong default value comment on the documentation page. Option types are being checked.

After checking the DOCX, the problem was using an old version of LibreOffice (4.3), upgrading it solved the error.
