I saw Bug 86790 where a styleref field in word is not supported in writer, the other way around would be really nice, i.e.
Inserting a Field & choosing Document/Chapter in a header (showing the chapter number and name of the chapter if style Title 1 is used, for example)
saving the document in a docx format would reproduce the result of doing :
Header and Footer Tools / Design / Field/ StyleRef -> Heading 1 in Word
Right now, the header shows "Chapter", no field
That would be a wonderful way to convince people to use libreoffice (I know it would be with my students in college)
How is this different than the request in bug 86790?
Well, bug 86790 asks for support of the styleref from word to LO, I am asking for the other way around: I assumed the coding would be different, since the procedures are not the same, but I may be mistaken.
Thank you for your answer

Well the report says "This field can not currently be created in Writer", so I took it to mean that support inside Writer would be in the scope. Maybe you could ask in the report, if it was the idea?
Thank you, I will ask
Are you’re wondering whether in bug 86790 I’m asking for Writer to fully support the STYLEREF field known from Word? The answer to that is yes, certainly. The chapter field is not flexible enough in my view.
Nicolas: do we set this as duplicate of bug 86790?
Sebalis: thank you for the comment
Beluga: yes, let's set it as duplicate, since I included my comment in bug 86790
