    Word 2007 thesis formatting

    Hi all,

    I'm close to finishing my PhD thesis and I just can't get word to display the format as I want it to be.

    What I want is.

    Heading 1: the different chapters, no numbering in front of the chapter title
    Heading 2: section titles, including a number X.
    Heading 3: sub titles, including a number X.X.

    I manage to do this, but when I try and add figure legends that take the numbering from Heading 1, they show up as a 0.1., 0.2. etc.

    Is it possible not to show the number of Heading 1, and still use the number for the figures?

    If Heading 1 is not linked to a numbering level, you'll need to use Heading 2.

    But if heading 1s are your chapters 1,2 etc. and you want to call them that,

    Link Heading 1 to number level 1, set theEffects to hidden (click the Font button in the Define New Multilevel List or Define/Modify New List Style dialog), and follow the number with nothing.
    Link Heading 2 & following (ff) to number levels 2 & ff with the conventional number format setting (in other words, don't bother to touch them unless you have to).

    Setting the figure chapter numbering to Heading 1 should give you Figure 1-1, Figure 2-3, etc.
