EDIT: I may have just figured it out. Figures that it would be only a minute after asking the question. I unchecked the “protect from manual edits” option and it seems i can now mess around with the format. Is this the proper way?

Hello, I have to format my table of contents for my thesis in a very specific way, and poking around in Libreoffice I’m not sure if it is possible. I was hoping that someone who is more familiar with these things could give me some guidance.
I have to format the TOC like the example below. The main problem i’m having is I am not sure how to insert the “CHAPTER” header in between the Table heading and the actual table. Can someone point me in the right direction on how to do this? Thanks!
Here is an example:
Here are the detailed instructions:
TABLE OF CONTENTS - INSTRUCTIONS
- Use title heading of “CONTENTS” OR “TABLE OF CONTENTS.” The heading should all be
at the top of the page, all caps, and bold. You will double-space after the heading and
place the word “CHAPTER” on the left-hand margin and then double-space again before
you begin your chapter listings. You only list the word chapter once at the top.
- Headings are double-spaced between each entry; single-spaced within each entry. As
you single-space within headings, the subsequent lines of the heading should align with
the heading on the left-hand side.
- Chapters are numbered with Roman numerals. Chapter names are all caps.
- Headings should exactly match the text as it appears in the thesis. Page numbers must
be accurate and right justified.
- Use indents to indicate the appropriate level of heading. Outlining rules concerning
subheadings apply here (i.e., no single subheadings at any level). If you were
consistent in the application of your headings, you will also be consistent in the
presentation of your headings in the Table of Contents (i.e., upper and lower case or
first letter cap only at various levels of heading).
- You must include the chapter names as a minimum; however, it is appropriate to also
include the other level headings. If you include any level of heading, you must include
all headings of that same level. For instance, if in Chapter III you want to include a
level 3 heading, you would need to include all level 1, 2, and 3 headings in the Table of
Contents. If you have four levels of heading in your thesis, but only want to list level 1
and 2 in your Table of Contents, that is permitted.
- You can use dot leaders from the heading name to the page number or omit the dots, as
long as you are consistent.
- See page 12 in the thesis specifications for additional information.
