I am making tables in LibreWriter. The structure is one short column with a couple of numbers, followed by one long column with information that I type in. The individual rows are eventually cut out and put into stamp albums.

I've looked around for a "table row" field and I can't find one. One of the numbers in the first column is sequential and will serve as a page number after I stick that row into the album. It would be wonderful if I could insert a field and have the rows number themselves - especially for those times I go back and discover that I left something out 50 rows before.

If there is a way of doing there then a way of assigning a specific number to the first instance and letting it increment from there?

o Click just above your first column to select it. Alternatively, right-click in the column and go to Column > | Select.
o Open the Styles and Formatting window.
o Click the List Styles button at the top.
o Double-click one of the Numbering styles. (Try each to see which meets your needs.) o If you don't want the trailing tab or full stop or whatever, right-click on the style name in the Styles and Formatting window and select Modify... . Use the Position and Options tabs to adjust the style to what you need.

You will notice that if you insert extra rows the numbering will adjust itself automatically - as you ask.

You say you want additional information in that first column - which you can indeed add. Alternatively, it may be easier to put this is an additional column.

I trust this helps.
