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

<snip />

You do the outline numbering with Chapter, Heading 1 , ... with normal 
outline numbering. You need to define a paragraph style "Chapter" and 
alter the assignment between paragraph style and level in the outline 
numbering dialog.

LibreOffice uses the field "Number range" for numbering in captions. 
Therefore these are not at all in the outline numbering. But when you 
insert a caption to a table or figure, you will see a Options-buttons. 
There you can tell LibreOffice to count newly for each chapter.

The "caption" item in the context menu is only a shortened way to set a 
caption. You can also write your own caption inserting the field "Number 
range" manually. That will be the right way for numbering formulas.

The Autotext FN puts the formula and the formula-numbering in a table. I 
would not use it, because it is not easily possible to move paragraphs, 
when the movement crosses a table. I would position the formula number 
using a tab. For display formulas in own paragraphs you can define a 
suitable paragraph style.

The captions are normal paragraphs, so you can add the needed brackets 
manually as you need them.

Each "Number range" will generate its own index later on.

The numbers of the outline can be inserted using fields.

Do not try to mimic the way things are done in Word, the concepts are 
different. But you can be sure, that you can write well formatted 
academic papers in LibreOffice.

Kind regards
