Hello Dan

I think you may misunderstood me.

Yes, the ToC uses styles labelled Contents. The ToC is built from using the Heading styles from 
each chapter.
None of the ToC Contents styles have any italic formatting.
The Title style in the chapter does have italic formatting, but this should no influence the 
Contents 1 style, which has Bold text.
The Contents 1 style appears in the ToC as bold text, but half regular text and half italic text, 
for example, Chapter 1 Introducing Impress (I hope the italic formatting shows in the email). This 
should not happen and is why I think it is a bug or a problem in the user guide template.

Heading 3 style uses italic text and is included in the ToC as Contents 3 for individual user guide 
chapters only. Some of the Contents 3 styles appear as regular text, all italic text or half 
regular and italic text.

As you can see, this is a mystery and as yet not found a solution.

I am compiling a book from chapters in the Impress Guide and have come across a formatting 
problem with the styles in the Table of Contents.

The Contents 1 style is assigned Liberation Sans 12pt Bold and is set to display the Title style 
from a chapter. The resulting ToC has a formatting error in the Contents 1 style.
The 1st part of the text is correct, that is the chapter number displayed as Chapter 1.
The 2nd part of this style displays the chapter title, for example Introducing Impress. The text 
is formatted as Bold Italic, which is incorrect. It should be Bold, the same as the chapter 

Is this a bug in LO Writer or a bug in the template? I do favour a bug in Writer.

I have come across this problem before when I have included the Heading 3 style into the ToC. 
This style is Bold Italic in the chapter, but is set to Regular in the ToC. However, sometimes 
the text for this ToC entry comes out partially italic, for example, Available toolsets or 
Available toolsets.

At first glance, I thought there is either direct formatting or a character style had been 
applied. However, I have since noticed another possibility: the style for Title. It is italic. 
Seemingly this has been applied to the Bold style for Content 1. What happens if you remove the 
display of the Title style?

Why would you want to include the Heading 3 style in the Toc? I thought the Toc is suppose to use 
one of the Contents styles only and no character styles either.
