Dear Tom, Thank you very very much for taking time trying to help me.

The .doc file I'm currently working on is ~200 pages, is in Farsi
language and is heavy enough that I think is not useful for you.
I can share the university template too, but its main problem is that
the template is mostly in Farsi and not understandable to others.
But I'm sure that my problem is not because of the template or its language.
So I'll translate the template to English (especially those parts of the
template that are related to this problem), then I'll write an example
with the translated template and I'll upload that example file. Using
that example file you will exactly understand what is my problem. I
guess that LO Writer UI doesn't support the exact Outline Numbering
format that I want, or there is a trick or point that I don't know. But
even if LO Writer doesn't support my requested feature, I believe there
should be an alternative solution to make the same output, because the
Outline Numbering format that I want is famous and is used in many other

Please wait, I'll make and upload the file and then post its link in
reply to this message.

Hi :)
Please could you "upload" the .doc template to Nabble so everyone can have a
look and see if we can modify it ourselves?  Is there anything confidential
in it that should not be displayed to the world-wide general public?  If so
then don't upload it!  

In Nabble start your reply and notice the "More" button just above where you
type the message of your reply.  The top option in the "More" button is to
upload a file in much the same way that you would for attaching a file to an

I think your formatting got messed up by the emailing system so it might be
better to just upload a file showing roughly how you want it although the
template might explain it fully enough.

Regards from 
Tom :)

Let me show you what exact Outline Numbering I want using the example

Level        Example(desired output) Associated Paragraph Style
1     Chapter 3:             Chapter
2      3.2-                  Heading 1
3       3.2.5-               Heading 2
4            Heading 3
5         (b)                none
6          Fig (3.12)        Fig Caption
7           (3.27)           Formula
8            Table (3.20)    Table Caption

As you can see in the example above the '3' in "Fig (3.12)", "(3.27)"
and "Table (3.20)" is the chapter number at level 1.

But in Writer->Tools->Outline_Numbering the first digit is not '3'
(level1 number) but the first digit in level 'n' with "Show sublevels =
2" will be number of level 'n-1'.
Therefor also in the .doc template everything is stored correctly using
MS Word, but when I open it with LO Writer I see Outline Numberings as

Level        Example(Writer result)  Associated Paragraph Style
1     Chapter 3:             Chapter
2      3.2-                  Heading 1
3       3.2.5-               Heading 2
4            Heading 3
5         (b)                none
6          Fig (b.12)        Fig Caption
7           (12.27)          Formula
8            Table (27.20)   Table Caption

How can I achieve my desired output I mentioned in first example using
LO Writer?
<snip />

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.
