Table of Contents not being identified as Table of Contents

I am converting an ODF to mobi and when I check in MOBI Output 'Do not add Table of Contents to book' it still doesn't identify the LibreOffice-generated Table of Contents already in the document as a Table of Contents.

The Table of Contents generated by calibre is not in a very good format as it doesn't follow the outline format of the document.

What can I do to get calibre to identify the Table of Contents that is already there as the Table of Contents?

THere's no way to do that from an ODT file. You can convert to epub and add your table of contents manually in a separate html file and then add an entry pointing to it in the OPF inside the epub and convert that epub to mobi.

Thanks. I didn't realize that converting a document into an ebook would be so much work!
