I’ve written a technical paper in Writer. Like most engineers, I reused an existing paper and just began
modifying its content. Now I want to mark a block of text, from a numbered section header through
six or seven paragraphs, into a Section. Then all my numbered sections would be listed in Navigator.
Unfortunately, there seems no intuitive way to do this. If I just select the text and click Insert Section
I get a cryptic dialog box with many features I don’t need. It offers no clue how to identify a section.
The Help just says: “Here it is possible to accomplish several tasks [like] give a name to the section.
Select the text listed in the box and type an appropriate name.” When I do this, Writer completely
rearranges my content. Is there any other way to tell Writer to make a section, using the numbered
header as its name, and preserving the arrangement of the text?!?
