Re: [libreoffice-users] Problem with chapter numbering and TOC.


Have you added your new style to the TOC?

Right-click on the TOC. Select "Edit Index".

If "Protected against manual changes" is checked, you will have to uncheck it, OK and re-edit the TOC.

Select the "Type" tab if not already shown. Down under "Create from", check "Additional Styles" and then the "Assign styles..." box to the right.

You should see a list of the styles in your document, including your "New Chapter" style, on the left column ("Not applied") and the associated TOC levels (associated to styles in the Styles tab) to the right of the first column. Scroll down to find your style, "New Chapter", and use the ">|" or "|<" buttons to assign a contents level for your style by moving the style into the proper level column. I would guess the "1" column, since it is higher than the headings.

Since by default, "heading1" style is associated to contents level 1 and this procedure reassigns TOC level 1, You may need to manually associate the heading styles to the correct level also. Do the same for all the heading levels you use in the document, since they are all shifted up a level. Note that the more custom levels you have, the less heading levels you will have, since the limit is 10. One way around that, is to assign a single TOC level style to all heading levels. But that may limit the look of your TOC if you want different styles for different levels, such as indents.

It may take some experimentation with this to get what you want out of it. For instance, if you want the "New Chapter" contents style to look different than the stock styles, you may need to make a contents style specific for the TOC rather than the default "contents*" styles. Then in the "Styles" tab, change the New Chapter level (1) to use your new contents style. Use the "<-" button by selecting the level and then the style followed by the "<-" button to make the assignment.

When you are all done, re-check the Protected Against Manual Changes box and OK.

Any thoughts or pointers would be welcome.
