Is there a way to automate creation of Bookmarks in Pages?

Hi Folks,
I am attempting to switch over to Apple Pages as my word processor. I currently use LibreOffice (formally OpenOffice), and have also used Word (up to v. 2011).
There is one feature lacking in Pages that for me is a deal breaker when working with long documents. There is no document navigation tool.
In WORD it's called the "Document Map". In OpenOffice/LibreOffice it is called the Navigator. The Navigator is better than Word's implementation as it allows one to navigate to any type of object in the document... creating a table of "map" of them.
I see that one can use Bookmarks as a workaround for a Word-like Document Map. But this means creating a new book mark for every Heading I need to be mapped out. In Word if a heading has a level assigned to it, it becomes part of the document map.
*Here is my question:*
*Would it be possible to use applescript to automatically generate bookmarks based on certain paragraph styles?*
With much thanks,
Jonathan

1) He said libreoffice is the new name for openoffice, which isn't true.
2) Openoffice may be owned by Oracle, but it's still open source (which is why so many other office suites are based on the openoffice code, e.g., NeoOffice and LibreOffice, as well as others.)
If you're going to say "libreoffice, formally openoffice" you have to back that up with some truth.
Thanks Eric.
My mistake. The last time I checked the opensource world was awash with statements to the effect that OO was dead. I then discovered that LibreOffice was picking up where OO left off.
I now see that OO is still going. So I guess people were making a fuss about nothing when the Oracle / Sun thing happened.
Either way, Apple Pages lacks the Navigation feature found in OO/LO, and Word. And that is what I'd like to find a way to work around.
I had to drop word on this kind of document because its way of handling numbered lists within paragraph styles was driving me nuts, as it had done for the person I was assisting, and has done for many other people I see have posted issues about that as far back as 2003 or earlier. So I switched my friends document over to Pages, as that's installed by default on her MBP. But she really wanted the document map functionality that was in Word. OO/LO was my next option, and the one I am running with for now.

  • When capturing footage is there a way to automatically create new clips...

    When capturing footage in Final Cut Pro is there a way to automatically create new clips like it does in iMovie. I have to capture over 9 hours of footage and I dont want to spend the time logging each clip. I also dont want to just capture the whole tape then go back and log each clip. I really like how iMovie automatically creates a new clip each time the rec/pause button was pushed. is there anyway I can get Final Cut to do this??????

    You can capture the complete clip and then apply Mark > DV Start/Stop Detect over the captured clip. You could get the best of two worlds so: smooth capture and clips creation.

  • Is there a way to automatically insert the filename in the footer of a spreadsheet using iWork's numbers 3.2?

    Is there a way to automatically insert the filename of a spreadsheet into the footer when using iworks numbers 3.2?  iworks 09 had this feature and I can't find this feature in the new version of numbers.

    Hi rhyolite,
    In Numbers 3.x, The Print View and Layout View have gone (for now at least). Page Headers and Footers can only be reached under Menu > File > Print... to open Print Preview. Hover the cursor to reveal the Page Header and Footer fields.
    The only inserts that I can get to work in Print Preview are Page Number, Page Count and Date & Time. Filename is no longer in the Insert menu.

  • Is there a way to automate the CFX tags installation?

    Hello,
    I'm currently in the process of re-installing a web farm of ColdFusion 8 servers (W2K8, IIS 7.5).
    I have to install a number of CFX tags (C++) on each server to get the code running.
    Is there a way to automate the installation of the CFX tags (regedit imports, VBS, PowerShell...)?
    I found some link indicating that keys should be imported in the registry at: HKLM\Software\Allaire, but Allaire does not even exist in this branch (I believe that the instructions were true of older versions of CF).
    I installed one of the tags manually and noticed that the file neo-runtime.xml was updated with:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <wddxPacket version="1.0">
      <header/>

    Can I simply add the XML node to get it running?
    Thanks in advance for any lead to the solution.

    This is great! but I'm not there yet. I figured how to assign little midi triggered melodies to a touch track. I used to do stuff like this on an old Buchla years ago. How do I get the automation on the midi track to control the filter on an audio track? I created regions with the automation I want on a midi track, then I assigned those regions to keys with touch tracks. How do I get that to control the filter on the audio track?
    thanks,

    Is there a way to automatically upload videos that last more than 5 minutes from iphoto/photos ?
    I'm trying to find a way to store my photo library on the cloud, AND keep to acces to each photos/videos from the net (not just storing the .iphotolibrary on the icloud folder) but i cant do it for the videos of more than 5min ...

    I believe you are probably referring to iCloud photo sharing. If you wait a while, the next version of Yosemite will include the new Photos application which will sync video through the iCloud photo library feature.

  • Is there a way to automatically detect and delete duplicate photos in a library

    I just imported a load of photos into my main iPhoto '11 Library from several older MAC's Photo Libraries. Despite repeatedly using the "Don't Import Duplicate Photos" dialogue box, I have many duplicate photos. Is there a way to automatically detect and delete Duplicate Photos?
    I also have iPhoto Library Manager installed on my MAC, but cannot seem to locate on it anything that would do this.
    I have over 4,000 photos, so would really appreciate some help here! Thanks in advance...

    duplicate annihilator - http://www.brattoo.com/propaganda/
    And NEVER import an iPhoto library into another iPhoto library - doing so des not work and creates massive duplication
    if you still have all of the original iPhoto libraries I recommend you drag the bad one you created to the desktop (delete it later when everythin has successfully been completed) and start over usin iPhoto Library Manager - http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ -  to merge the libraries

  • Is there a way to automatically backup the Airport Extreme Configuration file (.baseconfig)?

    Is there a way to automatically backup the Airport Extreme Configuration file (.baseconfig).
    I know (in hindsight) that I can manually export it from the Airport Utility, but ideally I would like to include it in my Time Machine backup. I had a situation where my Airport Extreme (3rd generation) just stopped working (no lights, no power). I had not exported the config file. I bought a new Airport Extreme (5th generation) and had to manually configure the new router.
    Thanks

    One option would be to use Automator and record the actions to run the AirPort Utility; save the configuration file to the desktop (or any other location you want), and then, close the utility. You can then either make this a part of your login startup programs. Time Machine then should be able to make backups.

    I would also recommend to write the description into the meta data. This would allow to place a text frame above the image and it is possible to add meta information and file name automatically together with the image, when you place it or even in a prepared template.
    Meta data information can be written easily in Bridge in the Meta File Workspace.

  • Is there a way to automatically refresh a webpage in Firefox 3.6.10?

    hi there,
    I am hoping the Firefox team can help with a small problem, is there a way of automatically refreshing webpages within Firefox 3.6.10 and 4.06 beta? We are building an interesting website at the moment and the client is using Firefox 3.6.10to view the site. Each time they go onto the new website to see the changes we have done, they are shown old pages. We need to rectify this problem as quickly as possible, for our client without requesting that they refresh the page each time they go onto the site.

    You can do that by changing a hidden preference.
    # Type '''about:config''' into the location bar and press enter
    # Accept the warning message that appears, you will be taken to a list of preferences
    # In the filter box type '''browser.cache''' to bring up a small number of preferences
    # Double-click on the preference '''browser.cache.check_doc_frequency''' and change its value to '''1'''
    For more details on that preference see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.cache.check_doc_frequency

  • When downloading iTunes onto a new computer, is there any way to automatically import old music files? Last time I got a new computer I didn't have to use an external drive to update my music library.

    When downloading iTunes onto a new computer, is there any way to automatically important songs from your previous computer? I recently cracked the screen on my computer and cannot access any files. Last time I got a new computer my iTunes media files automatically appeared in my iTunes when I downloaded it, and I did not have to use my external drive. Is this still possible?

    If your backup copy of the old computer was not stolen, then use it to put everything back.

  • Is there a way to automate Reaktor in Logic 7

    Is there a way to automate Reaktor in Logic 7.. i.e all the nobs?

    The best way to automate any NI instrument in Logic is to use Kore from NI.
    Kore opens as a pi and acts as host to single or multiple AU instances. Kore hardware has 8 buttons and 8 controllers assigned to control all parameters (all set up in factory presets, but also user controllable)
    When you open a software instrument in Logic using kore, Logic automatically assigns automation to 8 pages of the 16 controls. You do not need to set this up in Logic's cdontroller assignments, it happens automatically
    so if I open a sound in reactor I have no instant automation
    If I open the same sound in Kore I get up to 64 continuous controllers and 64 on/off switches instantly.
    I still find it hard to come to terms with how well kore works and how simple it is to use. Highly recommended.
