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

Thanks for taking the time to look at the document Kronose.

You are correct in saying that you can manually type anything in
whatever might be chosen to be the chapter heading.

Unfortunately, you overlooked what I wrote in my original post about
following the instructions in the official help file
https://tinyurl.com/vsq77lu where it says:

<Q>To Create a Paragraph Style for Chapter Titles
Choose Tools - Chapter Numbering.
In the Style box, select the paragraph style that you want to use
for chapter titles, for example, "Heading 1".
Select the numbering style for the chapter titles in the Number box,
for example, "1,2,3...".
Type "Chapter" followed by a space in the Before box.
Enter a space in the After box.
Click OK.

Please let the documentation team know of the the project documentation
is incorrect.
