Bug ID: 133294
           Summary: FILESAVE EPUB Enhancement for styles with page breaks
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer

I have been using LibreOffice Writer's export to EPUB feature to create ebooks.
It works very well, but could be made better with better handling of Writer's
"Page Break Before" style. Currently, the EPUB generated by Writer does not
take these breaks into account, making the output less attractive than the
native ODF or exported PDF. But, by manually modifying stylesheet.css, in the
EPUB format, I was able to produce the page break before behavior correctly.

I would like to request an enhancement to have the Export to EPUB do this by

I am uploading a Writer document that explains this request in more detail, as
well as PDF and EPUB documents produced in Writer A second EPUB
document has the modifications I made to have it display stylings that are more
in line with the native ODF and exported PDF.

All of my tests and screenshots are with Writer on Windows 10 64-bit and using
Kindle Previewer 3 as the ebook reader.
Thanks for a wonderful product and the recent addition of EPUB exports.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a document and modify a style to include page break before.
2. Export to EPUB and PDF.
3. Compare the placement of the styled text and notice EPUB does not include
the break like ODF and PDF do.

Actual Results:
EPUB ignores page breaks in styles.

Expected Results:
EPUB should render page breaks just like the ODF and PDF formats.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
In the attached ODF document, I have shown how it is possible to add CSS
parameters in the EPUB's stylesheet.css that will make EPUBs render more like
the ODF and PDF versions of the same file
