helo everybody,
i'm a teacher and a lot of students come to me with their it problems..

one of them comes up every year when they have to deliver and print their
first pre-scientific work.

it seems to be very very hard to get libre office to not display page
numbers on the first page and the abstract and the table of contents.

applying site templates like "erste seite" or "verzeichnis" seems to work
in avery unpredictable way even if proper manual site breaks are in
place..  sometimes it removes the footer on all pages, sometimes on every
second page and most of the time it sets the template either for the page
after the current page or for the page before..

i figured out a way to get it done but it is very unituitive
also getting the page numbers to start with nr.1 on page 4 is not something
an everyday user would ever be able figure out .

what is the proposed way to get this done..  could you consider reworking
that specific part ..  thousands of students in austria need this every
year.. so it would be nice to have an intuitive easy way to get this done
and help with the adoption of libre office

setting page templates seems a bit buggy too but thats probably because we
are "holding it wrong"

thanks in advance
