Setting up the indentation of headings

Whether or not the headings are numbered, you may want to change some of their formatting. For example, you may want the second-level and third-level headings to be indented from the margin. For numbered headings, you may also want the second line of long headings to line up with the first word of the heading, not the number. For these changes, use the Position page of the Outline Numbering dialog box.

Image:documentation_note.png The Position page for documents created in OOo3 is slightly different from the Position page for documents created in earlier versions of OOo that are opened in OOo3. This difference is provided for backwards compatibility.

Positioning in new OOo3 documents

The figure below shows the Position page as it appears for documents created in OOo3.

Setting up the position of level 1 headings.
  1. In the Level list on the left, choose 2. Change the values for Numbering followed by... at and Aligned at, as shown below.
  2. Indenting Level 2 headings.

    You may want to use a different value. This indents the entire heading but does not affect the way long headings wrap around.
