Subject: Re: [office] Soft page break question


By "when a document is paginated" I mean to say that an application is 
computing a page based layout of the document. There may be 
applications, that create or modify an ODF, which never compute a layout 
(e.g. automatically translating text content)

It might by wiser to say "when a page based layout of the document is 
computed, soft page-break elements should be generated".
