             Bug #: 118644
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Possibility to create a "short chapter field" as
                    alternative for long headings
    Classification: Application
           Product: Word processor
           Version: OOo 3.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: formatting
        AssignedTo: writerneedsconfirm@openoffice.org
        ReportedBy: rgb.mldc@gmail.com
                CC: ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org


If a heading (a "heading1" paragraph, for example) is something like this:

This is a very very very long long long heading that could run over several
lines.

the chapter field will reflect the whole paragraph, but on my page header I
want,
instead of that, the following:

A long heading...

That is, a reduced version. In latex, you can assign a brief "alias" to a very
long heading (something like \Chapter[brief heading]{The very long complete
heading}), so if you use a fancy header, the alias and not the actual heading
is displayed in the header.

In OOo, the chapter field displays the whole paragraph, correctly aligned with
line breaks when needed, but there is no way to set an "alias", which is an
important limitation to the design of complex documents.
