I'd love to see Office allow me to save my customized outline styles.  Under 
Format>>Bullets and Numbering>>Outline, MS Word allows me to select one of the 
styles, customize it the way I want and save it for future use.  I really need

Already specified in follwoing spec.: 

Target for that feature might be OOo 3.0/SO9.

In my opinion, the mechanism to save customized outline styles is already
implemented in a brilliant way in OOo through the List styles mechanism. the
issue is that this brillant feature is hidden away in the user interface. 

I would love efforts instead go into having "Format>>Bullets and Numbering" and
the numbering button cooperate better with the List Styles mechanism instead. 

As a suggestion, the current "Format>>Bullets and Numbering" could be modified
as follows. Have a dialog presenting to the left the List styles, and to the
right a preview of the currently selected style (which should be the same one a
spreviously applied). In the dialog, there are some buttons. An OK button should
just apply the curent List style. A "Modify" button obviously should call the
Numbering Style dialog, allowing to change the style. A "New" button would allow
to create a new List style, while a "copy" button could provide functionality to
to copy existing settings into a new List style.

The Numbering button should apply a predefined numbering style instead of
default settings that cannot be controlled by the user. Better yet, it should
allow to change the numbering style you can apply using the button, for example
using a "long-click"mechanism or a drop down arrow (cfr the Table button).
