> 'clear' attribute for line breaks
> ---------------------------------
>                 Key: OFFICE-4124
>                 URL: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-4124
>             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.4
>            Reporter: Regina Henschel
>            Assignee: Regina Henschel
>            Priority: Major
> h1. Rationale
> h2. Use cases
> The {{clear}} attribute for a line break defines where a next line should appear after line break in case anchored objects intersect with the current line.
> Users sometimes want to make sure that the next line continues at the next full line, below an anchored object, without starting a new paragraph.
> h2. Alternatives considered
> It is possible to have a similar (but not exactly the same) layout by expressing the same content with two paragraphs, and enabling "anchor only" wrapping for the anchored object. The problem is that this works with two paragraphs, so it's different layout when it comes to various paragraph properties (spacing, etc).Â
> h1. Impacts
> h2. Conformance
> This proposal will not add any mandatory features or behaviors.
> h2. Backwards compatibility
> This change will not impact existing ODF processors, the usage of the new  attribute value is optional.
> h2. Accessibility impact
> This change will not impact accessibility.
> h2. Interoperability
> OOXML's wordprocessingML has a {{<w:br w:clear="..."/>}} markup to describe  the same, this proposal allows roundtripping that feature in ODF. LibreOffice  7.4 implements this layout feature in its ODF extension namespace.
> HTML, combined with CSS also allows to describe the same, this proposal allows  roundtripping that feature in ODF.
