Hi Michael

Go to Tools > Outline Numbering...

Choose the Position tab. You will see 'Numbering followed by' is set to Tab Stop at <an amount of space>. Simplest is to just increase that spacing. I needed to increase it to 1.01cm to get the effect you need.

You may want to play around with the settings on the Position tab.

Hope that helps.

Tony

No. Other than this I don't really have any problems with it.

That doesn't seem to work, Tony

Hi Michael

When I tried it out, it certainly did work. There might be reasons why it didn't work for you. I have a fairly recent version of LibreOffice, which may have more features or bug fixes than the OpenOffice.org that you have.

I will email you my test document. Let me know if it looks OK to you. If it doesn't, please tell me what version of OOo you have got and which version of Ubuntu you run it on.

Hi Michael

Thank you for your email to tell me that you are still having problems, having looked at the test document that I sent you. May I suggest we keep our dicussions on this question page so that anyone else having the same problem can benefit from it.

If your document still has a problem, can you email me a copy? Of course, if it is private or confidential you won't want to do that. So maybe you could make up a test document like I did, perhaps by copying a pasting the relevant bit of the original and making changes to the text.

Tony:
I will send you a test document. I don't see how to do that here.

Hi Michael

There is no way you can put an attachment here on the Answer tracker (see this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/77123)

You will have to send it to my email address.

Tony

If you make a new user and open the same file, is the same behaviour exhibited?

Can you help with this problem?
