Yes, that's fine in theory how to adjust existing TOCs but it doesn't
actually tell me how to make these links use "index link" automagically when
I open a word document in writer. I don't also see any way to change the TOC
defaults. I can insert a TOC in the template, yes, but that will only
achieve having a TOC in all new documents (?). TOC settings do not appear in
the style manager or any other place I've found. I can only see them when
inserting a new TOC or editing an existing one. 

WRT template changer, I'm not really sure it's really faster than changing
the internet link -style. The keyword here is how to make this happen
automagically. I'd love to recommend libreoffice as a handy indexed PDF
creator but those amateurish looking garish TOC entries are just not
professional looking at all in a document that's supposed to be handed to

If you have read a 400-page microcontroller handbook in PDF that isn't
indexed you know it'd be pretty easy sell..

Hi :)
Thanks Jean :)  So, that is Chapter 12 of the Writer Guide in this link
or at the official website's documentation (same guide is on both)

What template is used for import? If it's the default template for
Writer docs, he could set a custom default template.

Otherwise, after import he could use Template Changer to apply his
custom template; that should be faster than changing the style each

Aside: instead of changing the "Internet link" style in order to
change the TOC's appearance (which also changes it for actual internet
links), I would change the "Index Link" style and apply that style to
the TOC. I think there are instructions about how to change the TOC's
link style in the Writer Guide's chapter on TOCs.


So far so good but the default style for TOC items and links in word
document is "internet link" style which is to my mind rather ugly
blue. Word uses black font for the TOC-style links normally and blue
only for actual internet links.
