Hi,

I'm facing an issue with the index/table of contents generation in the document.

I am inserting a document index using the "Insert Index/Table" command from the menu options. However, when I close the document, reopen it, and update the index- the hyperlinks do not work. Also, the index levels collapse and only the main headings (Heading1) remain.

I tried regenerating the index afresh, but it doesn't work. Can you please help?

To help you more information is needed. Please have a look at http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questio... and provide especially information on which steps you took to insert the which index.

Thanks for the link. I will try to elaborate the issue. I am creating a Software Requirement document using Libre Office Writer version 4.2.

I want a table of content in the following format:

  • 1 INTRODUCTION 4

  • 1.1 Purpose 4

  • 1.2 Scope 4

  • 2 SYSTEM OVERVIEW 6

  • 3 DETAILED SYSTEM DESIGN 8
  • 3.1 Design description 9

I click Insert, go to "Insert Index/Table" from the menu option and apply formatting to the individual Levels. For example, for Level 1, the index Structure is LS LS E# E T. Similarly for Level 2 and Level 3.

Once I click OK, the index is generated and I save and close the document. However, when I reopen the document and click Update Index, the table of content looks like:

  • 1 INTRODUCTION 4
  • 2 SYSTEM OVERVIEW 6
  • 3 SYSTEM DESIGN 7

The second level index and the hyperlink is removed. I think some where, the LibreWriter resets the index properties on reopening the document.
