Create Index or Table of Contents



Include up to level

Specify the maximum outline level for a paragraph, specified in Create from, to be included in the index.




Creates the index using outline levels. Any paragraph with an outline level less than or equal to the outline level specified in Include up to level is included in the index.

Paragraphs formatted with one of the predefined paragraph styles (“Heading 1–10”) have an outline level that corresponds to the number in the paragraph style. You can also assign outline levels to paragraphs in the Outline & List tab page of the Format - Paragraph dialog.


LibreOffice creates the table of contents entries based on the outline level of the paragraph style and the paragraph contents. If the paragraph is empty, it will not be included in the table of contents. To force the empty paragraph to be listed in the table of contents, manually add a space or a non breaking space to the paragraph. Spaces added in the After text box of the Numbering tab in the Heading Numbering dialog will not work for this purpose, since they are part of the paragraph numbering, not the paragraph contents.


Includes paragraphs with the paragraph styles specified in the Assign Styles dialog as index entries. To select paragraph styles, click the Assign Styles button to the right of this option.Assigned paragraph styles must have an outline level less than or equal to the value specified in Include up to level to be included in the index.


Use “Additional Styles” to include paragraphs in the Table of Contents with the “Figure Index Heading” or “Bibliography Heading” paragraph style, as well as any other relevant paragraph style.


Opens the Assign Styles dialog, where you can select paragraph styles to include in the index. Choose a desired index level for where a style will be displayed in the index.
