I cannot see any way to use text numerals (if a font has them) instead of regular numerals in fields and lists (for example, a field that references the current page number, automatically numbered lists, etc.)

The only thing I can think of is to set the style for those fields and numbered lists to reference a custom-made font that puts the body text font's text numerals in the character position for regular numerals. (If that makes any sense.)

Any thoughts? I'm testing the limits of Writer for book design. Smile

Isn't this something Georgia (and probably others) does already?

Yes. Many fonts use text numerals as their basic numbers. I'm wonder if its possible to use text numerals for automatic numbering with a font that has regular numerals, plus text numerals in the "Personal Use" area.
