Independent Item Numbering Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I don't know if this is currently possible, on its way in OO4 or not even considered yet but in principle, I would like a way to separate 'Titles' and 'Items'. In this way items could be managed separately from the outline structure.

For example:

1 The Solar System
1.1 The Planets
1.1.1 Earth
10 - Enslave Male Earthlings
20 - Steal All Women
1.1.2 Mars Setup
30 - Send Male Earthlings to Mining Colony Construction
40 - Build Factory and Mining Complex
50 - Create Golf Course for Slave Masters
60 - Build Sun Surfers
1.1.3 Venus
70 - Terraform Venus
80 - Set-up pleasure palaces
90 - Induct Earth Women
1.2 The Sun
100 - Set up Sun Surfing School & Bar
I'm wondering the same thing. Does anyone know how to do this?
Any takers on this ?
It's an interesting idea, but how do you handle the case of a row with no children, but a sibling which has children? I've added Jupiter to your example, and you and I both know it is a 'title' but how is the program to deduce that? Not sure that just assuming that if a sibling has children it must be a title despite the lack of children is a good solution it would fall apart if we needed one of the Venus children to have one or more children, for example.

I don't know the answer as I just bought OO3, but I have to say that this has to be one of the funniest lists I've seen in a while. :D
