Creating a specific diagram style
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hello,

I'm new to OG, but seem to be picking it up rather quickly. However, I'm trying to do two distinct things and can't seem to find any documentation on either.

1. Forcing OG to append outline numbers to the beginning of each title. So that each new child gets 1.1 Topic, 1.2 Topic, 1.3 Topic etc, and siblings get 2.0 Topic, 3.0 Topic etc.

Is this possible to be done dynamically, so if I modified the order of something, it would automatically change the numbers.

and much more importantly,

2. I'm trying to create a diagram style that will cause children into a vertical line rather than horizontal, with their children simply being indented slightly. I'm attaching two examples that I built by hand, and that a friend showed me. But I haven't been able to get the diagram style to actually do this dynamically.

Any thoughts?

Right On!
 
I'm looking for precisely the same solutions. Email me if you've found it since posting this thread.

Any luck?
 
have you guys had any success with this? I'd love to set up a solution exactly like #2

I can't view the images for some reason (it keeps asking me to login in a never-ending cycle...), but I think that the 2nd point is what I've just posted about here: [URL="http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?t=3920"]http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?t=3920[/URL]

I'm hoping there's a way to do this as it'd save me so much time!

Thanks,

Ste

Okay, the 2nd picture did open (the 1st one didn't), and although it's kind of similar to what I'm after, it's not quite the same look as I'm trying to achieve.

Thought he theme of laying out children vertically (in rows) is there.

Any ideas anyone?

Any solutions to this? Im needing both, but number 1 is a priority right now.

Thanks

Append outline number to each title
 
How does one have OG dynamically prepend the outline number in front of the title?
