I am missing the ability to control-click in a table of contents and go directly to that entry. Is that available in Writer somewhere?

    From the OO Help:-

    To assign hyperlinks to entries in a table of contents:
    You can assign a cross-reference as a hyperlink to entries in a table of contents.
    1.Right-click in the table of contents, and then choose Edit Index/Table.
    2.Click the Entries tab.
    3.Click the heading level that you want to assign hyperlinks to in the Level list.
    4.In the Structure area, click in the box in front of E#, and then click Hyperlink.
    5.Click in the box behind the E, and then click Hyperlink.
    6.Repeat for each heading level that you want to create hyperlinks for, or click the All levels button to apply the formatting to all levels.

    (Hyperlinks can be formatted to appear not to look like Hyperlinks.)

    While the suggestion as given will work, it is not worth the effort in my case. I have hundreds of entires, and so assign each one manually is too much work, for the odd case that someday I will open that document and refer to that heading. Easier just to scroll down.

    What I miss is the MS feature that automatically works without any setup.
