Sarah, thanks for your reply.

No, it depends on the device that is used. If I use PDF or postscript they all go into different pages of a single file. This is why I was referring to setImageDefs as a guess for a solution in my original post, but couldn't get it to work. Your suggestion of par/layout is unfortunately not what I'm looking for. I was hoping that the individual plots would come one after the other in the ODF document. And I also hope that 'pedestrian' solution of breaking into separate chunks in the ODF file has an alternative, because often this would required a rewrite of functions.

Any other hints?

Thanks,
  Tobias
