I am in the process of trying to build my thesis in Writer with content that initially came from Word (which may or may not be part of the problem I am facing).
I wish to have an outline numbering style on headings of:
1., 1.1., 1.1.1., 2., 2.1., etc.
(commas are line spaces here as they don’t seem to be respected when I post it as such in this form)
This numbering style was already in place before moving the content from .doc to .odt and appears to have largely copied over correctly except I cannot get the numbering on “Heading 4” to work correctly. It appears that they are now just part of the text and not recognised by Writer as numbering.
Please see example file here: www.cubbyusercontent.com/pl/Example+headings.odt/_da8b1fd401e043fd817ebee67b6d8bf7
I have already corrected the numbering style to include a “.” after the last number which was not always there to begin with. However this has not been applied to Level 4 / Heading 4 as the numbering is not properly recognised. I also have been unable to re-add correct numbering to this heading despite reading a large amount of material and tutorials on the internet on formatting and outline numbering in Writer.
I cannot get the Heading 4 entries to pick up and follow on from the numbering used with the rest of the headings. (When I try to add new numbering to the Heading 4 entries it just starts again from “1.”).
If anybody could suggest a solution which works on the attached file I would be very grateful.
Thanks for reading,
