Setting the tier of a section number in a macro

Post by MalcolmRoss » 2011-08-14 06:00:46

I am trying to write a macro which will replace section headers marked by tags (actually the LaTeX tags '\section', '\subsection' etc) with formatted, numbered headers.

The one thing that has defeated me is the numbering of subsections and subsubsections. Manually, the numbers are inserted with Format:Lists:Headings, and the next tier is entered by immediately pressing 'Tab' (i.e. pressing Tab turns, say, '2' into '2.1' etc).

Obviously I can use Format:Lists:Headings as a menu command in the macro, but I don't know how to emulate the effect of pressing 'Tab'. Can anyone tell me how?

Thanks.

Hello Malcolm- that's no trouble. This ought to do it:

Code: Select all

Menu ':Format:Increase Indent'

Thanks, Martin. I should have looked at the menu items a bit more carefully!
