Somtehing like this document:
I'm sure that solves OU's problem, but:
(1) How did you make the word/paragraph "Dedication:" an indexing target?
(2) To hide it, what was the reason for choosing a White font color
rather than the Hidden attribute?
I am sure the solutions rendered by others will work, but here is
another solution, manipulating the TOC format, which I use some times:
1. Create a new style, say "Dedication", and assign this style to the
text you want hidden in the document body (i.e. the dedication
heading). You can then make the style hidden. This is under Font
Effects in the Paragraph Style window and at the bottom of the left
2. Edit the TOC, and assign the style "Dedication" to, say, Level 10.
To do this, under the Index/Table tab, check Additional Styles and
the ellipses button [...]. In the popup, select the Dedication style
on the left and then using the >> button, move it to level 10 on the
right and click OK.
3. Now under the Entries tab, select Level 10 and delete everything to
the left of the "T" in the Structure format line. Then in the text
block before the T, add "Dedication" (no quotes). This is needed
because hiding the text in the Dedication paragraph style propagates
to the Contents style in the TOC and it is hidden in the TOC as
well. This is a sledge hammer approach and the two texts need to
match, or maybe not, as you wish.
4. Then under the Styles tab, select the Paragraph Style you want to
use for the Level 10 TOC line (do not select Dedication!), usually a
I tested this using OpenOffice, but it should be the same for LO, and it
does work - no "Dedication" paragraph text before the actual dedication
paragraph, but there is a "Dedication" entry in the TOC.
The downside to this solution is that you may not use TOC level 10 for
the usual association with Heading 10, and there are limited (less than
10) different styles that can be assigned this way. In fact, to be safe,
under the Index/Table tab and then in the "Evaluate up to level"
spinbox, change it from 10 to 9 in order to disable normal Heading 10
styles. I used this method for appendixes where I wanted the appendix
letter and a dash to prefix appendix page numbers in the TOC. In this
application, I only had two heading levels, one for the main body and
the other for Appendix A. Both headings have their own styles,
associated with different TOC levels and I am not using any of the
"canned" Heading styles.
