Using styles in outlining

Outline numbering is the feature that automatically numbers sections of a document, for example 1, 1.1, 1.2, 2 and 2.1. When sections are added or deleted, the numbering is automatically corrected.

Paragraph styles are the key to OOo’s outline numbering feature. The default paragraph styles assigned to outline levels are the heading styles supplied with OOo: Heading 1, Heading 2, and so on. However, you can substitute any styles you wish, including custom (user-defined) styles.

OOo’s outline numbering feature is used for more than numbering headings. The paragraph styles specified on the Outline Numbering dialog box (Figure 212) determine which headings appear in the table of contents (see Chapter 12, “Tables of Contents, Indexes, and Bibliographiesâ€) and some fields commonly used in headers and footers, as described in “Including chapter or section information in page headers†on page 184.
