Hi :)  
Sorry!  I couldn't find the section in the guides but you might find this helpful
on a side issue you might find Chapter 12 interesting "Creating Tables of Contents, Indexes, and 
Bibliographies".  There is a plug-in/add-on/Extension that might help with that, i think "Zotero"?

How rigid is the template?  

Can you create a fresh new Odt document in LibreOffice and follow the guidelines of the template 
without having to copy&paste anything from their template into your new document?  If there are 
bits you need to copy can you use paste-special to paste as unformatted text?  
Ctrl  Shift  v
rather than just 
Ctrl  v

A fresh start means you neatly avoid getting stuck with lots of legacy formatting codes that might 
spring surprises on you randomly in the future.  It gives you more control over what you do.  

If it is rigid and you can't just start afresh then it might be worth asking the University if they 
could give you an OpenDocument Format (ODF, specifically Odt) version rather than the proprietary 
one.  If not then perhaps be insolent and ask them to buy and give you the product, that is made by 
a foreign company, in order to be able to use their template.  Perhaps push further and ask them to 
supply it in a non-American 'local' language.  

Errr, i am guessing you are outside of the USA because most of the world is.  Also i assumed that 
your native language is not English (US) because, again, most of the world speaks other languages 
as their 1st language, even inside the US.  

Also note that ODF is an ISO standard.  ISO meaning it is agreed by an international agency made 
from people of many different nationalities.  While DocX also has a version that is an ISO standard 
that is not the one implemented in any version of MS Office so far because they all tweak it some 
different way that is non-compliant with the standards.  

Point out that you already have the necessary tools for the job but the only reason you would have 
to buy product from a foreign company is to complete this 1 task, the thesis.  The tools you 
already have do everything else better.  
Regards from 
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Customizing Number Format of each level in "Writer->Tools->Outline 

Hello, I need help with LibreOffice Writer -> Tools -> Outline Numbering.

As long as I know Tools -> Outline Numbering in LibreOffice Writer is
somehow equivalent to defining new Multilevel list in MS Office Word 2010.
But I need some features in formatting of each level in Outline
Numbering, which is not available in LibreOffice Writer but is available
in MS Word -> Multilevel list. I need some more professional formatting
of each level because I'm writing my thesis based on a template provided
by my university and I have to obey that template. In that template
(which is a .doc file) format of each level is defined in a particular
way that can be shown correctly in MS Word, but not in LibreOffice.
I need to be able to customize Number format of each level similar to MS
Word like what you can see here:

If someone is professional in this issue please help me.
