    Bullet points alphabetical order LibreOffice

    Hi there. I am wondering if anyone could help with a sorting problem that I am having with LibreOffice writer. I am trying to do a little glossary for my current work, and I am putting the definitions into bullet points. I can put this into alphabetical order without any problem by using Tools - Sort. However, in a couple of cases I have some sub-bullet points, and I want these to remain in those positions, under their main bullet point, but they are also being moved by the Sort.

    Is it possible to set it so that sub-bullet points aren't affected? Failing that, is it possible to group them all together so that they are treated as a single unit?

    perhaps you could make them as separate entity (e.g. stop bulleting, some sign (like enter) and then new bulleting for sub items). i had similar issues but i really can't remember how i resolved them.

    libre office also have their own forums and usually community there is more knowledgable about these specific cases.

    Thanks for that guys, I will try on one of those other forums. I have just done a bit of looking around and I think that the solution has something to do with 'outlining', so I just need to figure out how to do that now!
