@devurandom Try the Navigator (F11, then click on the compass icon), it can show outlines for various levels. You can also undock it or move the dock around.

@devurandom It also can do some funky stuff like following focus or dynamic level change.

(You gotta define your own headings though, using styles. No autogenerated headings like in Gdocs.) (Headings are defined through quite handy keyboard shortcuts though like ctrl+1 for heading level 1, ctrl+2 for heading 2 etc.) In Libreoffice there's the Navigator at the sidepane showing a ToC, but also a list of tables, images etc.
And yes, you can bring it to the left.
