I do not know if this is the right place (like IssueTraker),
but I wanted to ask if the developers
of LibreOffice may consider an improvement of alphabetical index.
Allowing more than one Alphabetical Index.
This feature would help compatibility with MsWord.
If I wrong, I apologize.
Setting it as enhancement, so that it can be searched/queried easily.
RTF, DOC, DOCX support this features.
As well DocBook and TEI.
ODF support multiple indexes?

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
more detail on this bulk operation: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/RFC-Operation-Spamzilla-tp3607474p3607474.html
I guess that not implemented yet, change status to New.
Minor change to summary. Apache OO issue added to See Also list.
Please read this message in its entirety before responding.
Your bug was confirmed at least 1 year ago and has not had any activity on it for over a year. Your bug is still set to NEW which means that it is open and confirmed. It would be nice to have the bug confirmed on a newer version than the version reported in the original report to know that the bug is still present -- sometimes a bug is inadvertently fixed over time and just never closed.
If you have time please do the following:
1) Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (preferably 4.2 or newer).
2) If it is present please leave a comment telling us what version of LibreOffice and your operating system.
3) If it is NOT present please set the bug to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment telling us your version and Operating System
Please DO NOT
1) Update the version field
2) Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
3) Set the bug to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

LibreOffice is powered by a team of volunteers, every bug is confirmed (triaged) by human beings who mostly give their time for free. We invite you to join our triaging by checking out this link:
There are also other ways to get involved including with marketing, UX, documentation, and of course developing - http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/.
Lastly, good bug reports help tremendously in making the process go smoother, please always provide reproducible steps (even if it seems easy) and attach any and all relevant material
Still present in LibreOffice 4.3
I really need this feature for a variable catalogue i'm making at work and which forces me to use Word. I'm currently making is a list of variable we use in our database. Each variable has all kinds of information, but the most important ones are the name and a number. What i want is to create indexes for at least the variable name and number. I can do this in Word (although not very user friendly) and the resulting index looks something like this.
- By Name -
Name (G100) ..... 1
Surname (G101) .. 2
Birthdate (G102) 3
- By Number -
G100 (Name) ..... 1
G101 (Surname) .. 2
G102 (Birthdate) 3
In LibreOffice, i can add multiple index, but not with unique content. I also tried using multiple concordance files, but that doesn't work either.
I confirm that:
- the need is actual and important
- the lacking feature affect still v.188.8.131.52
Wouldn't it be more useful to make the user-defined indexes more flexible?
Right now, user-defined indexes are fixed to sort by page number. If they were given options to sort by an index key and merge duplicate page numbers then they would emulate alphabetical indexes and the users can create as many as needed.
I'd like to second this enhancement request. It is quite a common feature of non-fiction books. The kind of indexes supported include:
Index of Names
Index of Subjects
Index of Places
and so on.
