Ideas, proposals and bug reports for New Working Methods

Need to be able to revert a Heading back to ordinary text.

Once text has been made into a heading, it seems it cannot be reverted to ordinary text.

    +1 and the other way round as well. Generic: change the format type (text, heading) after writing the text

    The "normal sytle" button would be a welcome solution (along with a hotkey).

    Btw: This textbox here for commenting has solved the issue quite nicely.

    There is a work-around, but not obvious, so an alternative means needs to be designed, like adding a 'Normal' style button in the editing toolbar.

    Work-around: To revert a heading back to ordinary text, do the following:

    Place the cursor at the start of the text of a heading. Use the backspace key to delete the heading number, then delete one more time - this will append the heading text with the text of the previous paragraph, at which point you can press Enter to create a new paragraph (perhaps create a new empty paragraph above the heading in the first place, especially if the last item in the previous section is a table, figure or Feedback Form).

    This won't work if a heading is the first item in the document. There, the only choice is to insert a paragraph after the first heading (if there isn't one already) delete the text of the first heading and its heading number and then using the Del key, delete the heading paragraph. You will loose the text of the heading in this case.
