In Libreoffice Writer, I am trying to make all my numbered headings in the following form:
1. First title 1.1 Subtitle 1.2 Subtitle 2. Second title 2.1 Subtitle 2.2 Subtitle 2.2.1 Subsubtitle
I tried playing around with
Tools > Outline Numbering, but the best I can only get one of the following:
1. First title 1.1 Subtitle 1.2 Subtitle 2. Second title 1.3 Subtitle 1.4 Subtitle
1. First title 1.1 Subtitle 1.2 Subtitle 2. Second title 1.2 Subtitle 1.3 Subtitle
Is there any way for me to put the subheading's numbering as a function of the numbering of the heading above, like in the example on the top?
I am running a
.docx file in LibreOffice 22.214.171.124.
Edit: I edited this question as per suggestions in the comments.
It seems like the big problem was the following. All the headings in the original file had a correct format (i.e.
Heading 1, Heading 2, etc). However, they had not been correctly converted to the "corresponding"
Heading 1, Heading 2, etc that Libreoffice uses (Thanks @gertvdijk). Thus, followin the steps in the accepted answer gets the job done.
Tools > Outline Numbering. Are you sure you did not reset any counter? I guess you have probably hit the "Reset numbering" or "Continue previous numbering" context menu item. And are you applying the regular styles ("Heading 1", "Heading 2" etc.)?
tools/outline numbering...is right. You should look into my edited answer again. I do think there are several ways of doing this.
