Simplifying page numbering in LibreOffice/OpenOffice

Project Description

Page Numbering Addon

This plugin, or by LO/OO terminology add-on(an extension that includes any kind of UI implementation/customization), includes the following features:


  • Add page numbering without taking page-break system into account

    Although Page Breaks are an intuitive and effective approach for document layout and styling, users migrating from Microsoft Office suites find it more than difficult to understand)

  • Configure styling options such as Font, Character height, Alignment and page position (Header/Footer)

  • Page offset and First page options

  • Numbering type selection such as Roman, Arabic or Greek

  • Multiple Page numbering setups per document

  • Compatibility with all modern LibreOffice/OpenOffice versions


Python Dependencies

  • libreoffice-script-provider-python package or even better uno-tools
  • uno-tools required dependencies
    • 3.4 or later
    • Python 3.3 or later
