5.7. Using Fields Instead of Outline Numbering for Chapter Numbers

The technique in "Using Fields in Headers and Footers" in section 5.6, combined with outline-numbered chapter headings (described in "Number Chapters and Appendixes Separately" in section 4.2.8), works well when you want the field to show information for the current chapter. But what if you want to use a cross-reference to refer to a different chapter? You cannot bookmark or set a reference to the chapter number part of a heading created using outline numbering.


Tip:

If you use this technique, some other features won't work because Writer doesn't recognize the field as chapter numbers. For example, you won't be able to include chapter numbers with the page numbers in headers or footers, or the table of contents, using the technique described in "Using Fields in Headers and Footers" in section 5.6.
