Description nunotavares 2004-05-17 22:20:39 UTC
I've been using OpenOffice (1.1.0)  intensively for some months, and would like 
to post some suggestions [SUG], and, perhaps, bug reports [BUG].
If you can, forward this to the oO bugzilla. I'm lacking the time to fill 
complete bug reports (at least for now).

Here we go:

#1:[SUG] I'm writing a document whose chapters are based on a Style. Index 
correctly gives them numbers, but a problem rises when you have a TOC like this:
1. Introduction
4. Conclusions
ie, "References" and "Bibliography" should share the same style, but remain 
unnumbered. Yet, they should be included in the main Index. Perhaps an option 
to "stop numbering at mark"?

See #29279 on how I use to do it (but it has its own counterparts).

MRU->ES: please evaluate.

Your problem is somehow an "how to" question and not a bug report. Thus I should
not answer it but...

- Apply (for ex.) "Heading 1" to your Chapter headings
- Apply a custom style (let's call it "Heading 1 clone") looking like Heading 1
to the "Bibliography" and other secrion
- In the Index dialog, check "Additional styles"
- click on [...]
- Set "Heading 1 clone" to level 1

Please, in the future, talk about issues first on or any
other suiting mailing list ( to see if
your problem reveals a bug or a missing feature, if it has a workaround, if the
bug is known etc.

I've posted it as an ENHANCEMENT, not a DEFECT...

Anyway, your suggestion works... I couldn't find any documentation, and I
thought that "Other styles" would get numbered as well. 

I'm very sorry for the mistake. I've posted this to the mailing-list before,
nobody seemed to know how to do it (didn't get *any* reply).
