    restart or continue numbering para loses indent

    the issue is: on formatted heading styles and numbering using restart or continue numbering the paragraph loses its indentation and tab position, and you have to reformat the heading styles again. if its a large document this can take be very time consuming.

    I've discovered the reason is the configurations have to be set in 2 locations:
    1. in Format, Styles and Formatting...heading styles Format, Paragraph and Format, Tabs
    2. in Format, Styles and Formatting... heading styles, Format Numbering... set the Number align position and Tab spacing

    ie. in Format Numbering
    in Customise Outline Numbered List
    The Number Position Left, aligned at: #
    Relates to the Left paragraph indentation

    The Tab position – tab space after # and indent at: #
    Relates to the tab position

    If the 2 configurations are set differently, when you use restart or continue, Word gets confused with the different configurations and the result is wacky paragraph indentations.

    Once the heading style is set in these 2 locations, when using restart, and continuing the numbering, the result is the paragraph is set and will “stick”. No lose of indentations.


    Anyone else experienced this? or can confirm this?
