Subject [Bug 120307] New: Row insert/move/delete moves ALL page-break-inserts within the document down past the top of their pages misplacing the beginning of the page. Also any page-break insert/delete may move all other page-break-inserts within the doc to odd new positions.

          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 120307
          Assignee: ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org
           Summary: Row insert/move/delete moves ALL page-break-inserts
                    within the document down past the top of their pages
                    misplacing the beginning of the page.  Also any
                    page-break insert/delete may move all other
                    page-break-inserts within the doc to odd new
                    positions.
          Severity: blocker
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Application
                OS: All
          Reporter: tommcdonald@knology.net
          Hardware: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: AOO 3.4.0
         Component: formatting
           Product: spreadsheet

This used to work but now for over a year page break insert has been a broken
feature in any multi page spreadsheet document: 

1- Any page-break-insert move, insert, delete, OR rows added under/before a
page break, may crash the document so you have to go into document recovery and
then the document is never the same again. 

One time hundreds of lines with a single character on them were added at the
end of a document after a crash and now they can't be deleted. Also I could not
copy and paste to a new document to fix it.

2- EVEN IF THE DOCUMENT DOES NOT CRASH: 
After any page-break-insert activity or row insert/delete activity, the
Rows-&-PageBreakInserts are moved throughout the document to wrong positions. 

Example: Like inserting 3 rows on a page, will for all the following pages,
move the page-break-insert character, down 3 rows into that page past the
top-of-page information. 

Headers and footers, off or on, do not seem to affect this.

What is happening is that any row inserted in the document mistakenly pushes
down all the lines in the document thus misplacing the page-break-inserts ON
EVERY FOLLOWING PAGE! 

This is NOT a feature. It is not the correct way for a spreadsheet to work. I
have been using spreadsheets 20 years and all the other ones worked correctly
as did Open Office before.

THIS DID NOT HAPPEN until one of the many miscellaneous updates happened like a
year ago then page-breaks began to blow up. This was also true before 3.4. This
is a disaster to my extensive work.
