I have some long titles (formated as "heading 1") which can't possibly be shortened in the text. Those titles also go into the header.

In the header they are too long. So what I would want to do is format the first part of the heading with a style "heading 1" and the rest of the heading with "heading 1 - not for header". That way only the first part would go into the header.

Unfortunately this does not work, since "paragraph styles" are - as the word suggests - "paragraph styles" and always the whole paragraph gets formated like that. So I can't format the first part of my title as "heading 1" and the second as "heading - not for header".

But there has to be a workaround.

I would be very very graetful for any help. Have been searching for a solution myself on google for over an hour now.

What OS and what version of OOo?

Why are the headings going into the header? I am pretty sure that you cannot do the half heading approach. However there may be some other way to get the header info but I am not clear on exactly what you're doing.

Does it help: [Tutorial] "In-line" or "run-in" headings? Try the macro I've posted at the end.
