Maybe, is this what you want tell me. Before, depending of the type of Pages or project I use that to ( like I wrote before for about static Excel doc’s )
Right now I am experimenting with an Excel sheet with all the fun ( Border with sections, Block Title’s, e.t.c. ), printing that as the same size as the LO page size, and put it at the very background ( with a reference to that PDF).
Started writing an excel macro that do that, printing as PDF, for me in different’s PDF’s every time I save the Excel Workbook.
So I have hidden Sheet clones with the right layout and ( LO-paper ) size and those will get printed.
Silly that we have to do all those mentioned workarounds.
And of course this way will works better ( line quality ) only when the resolution in LO is set to >96dpi.
Not yet tried anything with transparency when I need some thing on top of the drawing.
