Steve, I've never heard of a non-breaking paragraph terminator. Could you expand on how to insert it? I don't see it in the Insert > Manual Break menu.

 Let me try again :-)

 LO has a built in indexing feature.  Part and parcel of this feature is
 a configurable Table of Contents (ToC) generator.
 For some reason, this generator will include a user configurable set of
 Paragraph Styled text as ToC entries, but will not allow you to include
 text that is Character styled.

 As a result, any heading that could be described as "run-in" or
 "in-line" can't not be included in the ToC. In the example below, the
 bold text should be a heading, but cannot be made a heading without also
 making the entire ensuing paragraph part of the heading :-(

          <b>*This is Heading Three*.</b> As one can see, this level of
 heading yada yada yada
 and blah blah blah as that is the way it is.

 The macro that was referenced earlier creates a mini invisible heading,
 and then character formats the actual text, fooling the ToC generator
 into adding the text to the ToC, while hiding the heading from the
 reader.  Quite a kludge, but there should be a simpler and more robust
 way to manage this.

 Why? Because all APA (or similar style) formatted documents with a level
 3 heading have this issue, and because it is likely that all the
 generator is doing is searching for the tags, noting the page and adding
 the tagged text to the ToC, there should be no reason this would not be
 the simplest fix.
