Subject [Bug 120119] New: empty heading not included in contents index (ToC)
Date Thu, 28 Jun 2012 15:56:14 GMT

          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 120119
           Summary: empty heading not included in contents index (ToC)
          Severity: normal
        Issue Type: ENHANCEMENT
    Classification: Application
                OS: All
          Hardware: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: AOO 3.4.0
         Component: ui
           Product: word processor

Books often have chapters without titles: Chapter 21, or even just 21

If the numbering is generated by Tools > Outline Numbering, the headings will
not be included in the ToC because the paragraph is empty. Adding a space, or
any character at all, allows the heading to appear in the ToC.

Using paragraph numbering and setting the "outline level" property leads to the
same result: empty headings do not appear in the ToC.

Granted, printed books do not generally include a ToC, especially for chapters
without titles, but a ToC may be desirable, for example, with on-line formats:
a pdf or e-book, where the ToC provides links to jump to a particular chapter.

I don't see any advantage to automatically excluding empty headings; you can
easily configure the index to exclude that outline level. Currently, the only
way to include the empty headings, is to manually add some character to each
heading paragraph.

It should be purely under the user's control which headings appear in the ToC.
