Description Olivier Hallot 2021-05-27 12:53:49 UTC
Together with tables and images, blocks of text representing "listing" such as source code listings, raw data listings, are often used in technical text documents.

LibreOffice can have a "LibreOffice Writer Listing" caption category for such king of text blocks, to be set in the basic set of caption categories.

The "LibreOffice Writer Listing" basic category should be translatable.

The "LibreOffice Writer Listing" category should be cross-referenciable.

Note: User can define a custom "Listing" category, however, if the text is brought for translation, the custom category is not translated (as opposed to the defaults such as Illustration, Figure, Table, and so on).

For clarification: this is about a new table of contents type. What you do now is to select Type=User defined and Create From=Text frames. Right? If not, how do you identify the "listings" (the term wouldn't be clear to me but no better idea yet), let's say after source code being just formatted per paragraph/character style.

Now I see you block autocaption (tools > options > writer > autocaption) and expect to "Add captions automatically when inserting:"... What?
