Description rgb 2005-09-16 14:02:49 UTC
If a title (a "heading1", for example) is something like this:

This is a very very very long long long title
splited over several lines.

the title field will reflect the whole paragraph, but in my heading I want,
instead of that, the following :

A long title...

That is, a reduced version. In latex, you can assign a brief "alias" to a very
long title (something like \Chapter[brief title]{The very long complete title}),
so if you use a fancy header, the alias and not the actual title is displayed in
the header.
In OOo, the title field display the whole paragraph, correctly aligned with line
breaks when needed, but there is no way to set an "alias", which is an important
limitation to the design of complex documents.

The requested feature is still absent on OOo 2.4. 
I didn't test version 3 yet, but I cannot find any reference to this feature on
the available documentation.
