Description raindrops 2006-12-22 14:08:06 UTC
The Navigator has two buttons to promote/demote headings (they change the
sequence of headings in the document).

They do not work if the text is inside a table.

But often text in a document is formatted with tables. 

For example, in a two-column table, the left column is used as left margin; and
the right column is used for text. The left column may contain symbols, small
screenshots, frames that contain summary of a paragraph, etc. The right column
will contain headings and text.

It is not possible to promote/demote a heading in such a document. The user has
to cut and paste the contents.

any chance you could provide sampel document and reproduction steps?
Comment 2 raindrops 2006-12-26 12:20:46 UTC
I am attaching a sample. 

While making it, I came across multiple new problems. They are all listed in the
sample. I am not writing them down here, because they are difficult to
describe/understand without a sample.

MRU->OS: for me it is even not possible to promote/demote almost any of the
Heading paragraphs via Navigator buttons. Also it is not possible to drag any of
the headings in the Navigator window as it is possible in other documents
created from scratch.
The headings are correctly assigned in Tools.Outline.

Strange! I don't get that problem! Can you ask someone else to confirm?

Also, please let me know if I have to (a) split some particular issues and (b)
raise new issues. (Although I would prefer that the OOo team clones the bugs
from this one.)

In case of the the mismatch between the help file and tooltips for these
buttons, unless it is established that the help file is wrong, I cannot raise a
separate bug to correct the help file. (For example, the help file could be
correct, and the tooltips could be wrong.)
