I confirm, that it is not possible to set chapter numbering to 1-1 or A-1

Version: 6.4.0.0.alpha0+ (x64)
Build ID: b170256fb6ebaf774b02b89835b19d9f3a1afb89
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: default; VCL: win; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@42, Branch:master, Time: 2019-06-07_03:30:35
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

I think, if it is part of APA-Style, it should be implemented

=> NEW Enhancement

Mockup for the modification

We have "Before" and "After" allowing to enter static text. The customization could provide means to modify the delimiter "Between" similarly, defaulting to the dot. In case of levels >2 it makes sense to only change the last delimiter, e.g. A-1+I defines the - at level 2 and the I at level 3 (but not A-1 vs A+1+I). 
Provided ODF allows this flexibility.

All these changes needs to fit into the new dialog, adding some developers. The mockup does not work on all aspects; in particular the mix between characters and numbers is not possible with this kind of top bar selection. So please just consider the Before/After > Delimiter part. (For consistency it needs a dot at After to have 1., 2. etc. - we provide this customization today only per selection from the predefined types).

Isn't it easier to integrate this option in Tolls => Chapter numbering?

Additional Option "Seperator between Numbers"

We talk about the same, the mockup is just considering the new dialog (only available in Impress so far). And in fact it is the same option that I just put between others to safe space. In any case "between" would be before (disabled for level 1) or after (disabled for l10) while the term "between" for sure is easier to grasp (and IMHO better suited to before).

The idea to revamp the bullets dialog (1) has be partially implemented in Impress for the upcoming 6.3 release (@Gulcah: don't see your work in the release notes).
