Hi Andy,

OOo and derivatives like LO cannot do outlining. What LO does is an outline formatting with the Navigator, which is useless for outlining. Those who use outlining intensively will confirm that (see link below).

It has been an issue for more than 10 years now. Use a real outliner; I use "Pages '09" (cost about 14,95 Euro) on Mac. M$ also has outliners, but they cost more than double that of Pages. There are also some open-source outliners. Most of them export the finished documents into all word processor file types for the final formatting and printing. For more information see issue "Outline View (aka MS Word)":

I hope LO developers have another attitude to this show-stopper for most advanced and technical writers needing an outliner in LO. Otherwise we outliner users will not be able to use LO any more.



I am trying to create a report document template with a basic outline using
styles so that the headings and formatting are automatic:

I am finding this incredibly difficult and confusing.  The further I try to
teach myself how it works, the more confused I get.  Could somebody give me
a simple step by step process to create the following outline in an existing
document, addressing the the different types of styles involved?

I would be very greatful.  Thanks.
