Thanks Dennis,

I never thought about that aspect of PDF exports. Good point.

Dave, the usability of Tables of Contents and the ability to navigate around 
certainly has different UX depending on the product.  Users may be happy with 
the mileage they get with their particular productivity software and how it may 
or may not have evolved over time.

However, if the goal is to produce stable PDFs for AOO documentation, one needs 
to have the linking that will work for exports to PDF (along with forward and 
back navigation in the PDF viewer, assuming users know how to turn it on).  It 
seems to me that should be the target UX here.

This is not a bug, in fact this is an advantage. The Table of Contents
(TOC) is a passive reflection of the chapter structure and does NOT get updated 
automatically. To update it is Tools > Update. If you want to jump to a 
particular chapter, use the the Navigator (key F5 or menu View). The Navigator 
not only allows you to jump to chapters, it allows you to move them up or down 
etc. Openoffice's way of going about this is far superior to Word's.
