Description support_writer 2007-06-20 21:38:29 UTC
When exporting to PDF there is no possibility to exclude headline numerations
for PDF bookmarks.

I need a way to assign a numeration template to a headline, but do not display
the numeration in an exported PDF. So a Headline

    1.1. Introduction

will be displayed as above in the writer document, but will be displayed as

    Introduction

in the PDF.

fme->support_writer: Well, changing the code to not include the numbering in the
bookmarks is quite easy, just exchange GetOutlineText(i) in
sw/source/core/text/EnhancedPDFExportHelper.cxx with GetOutlineText(i, FALSE).
What really gives me some headaches is to add just another UI entry ("Do not add
outline numbering to bookmarks in on PDF export"). Do we really want or need
that? So we have two options: Close this issue or keep it alive which allows you
to collect some votes for this issue. What do you think?

The demand for this feature comes from the scientific field, where it is quite
common to publish PDFs which do not have the numbering included into the PDF
bookmarks.

I think this is the case due to the fact that most scientific papers are created
with LaTeX. Additionally to a PS output they are converted into PDF and published.

Do you think it is so complicated to add this option to the PDF Export-Dialog?
Just adding a checkbox under the "include bookmarks"-option would solve the
problem, I think.

What do you think?

fme->support_writer: No, adding the UI is not complicated. The problem here is
to decide if we want to have one more option in that dialog. I suggest you
should discuss this on discuss@ux.openoffice.org and start collecting votes for
your enhancement request.
