Migraine - subheading numbering refuses to follow previous level
My problem is simple to explain . . . to solve, maybe not.
I have set up a document with numbering 1.0, 1.1 and 1.1.1. (The first two levels were in place, but the 3rd level was previously just simple bullets).
I created the numbering style for level 3 by having it follow level 2.
However, on my first try, under 4.2, I get "4.1.1" instead of "4.2.1" (middle numeral is wrong). Why isn't the style working correctly, if I have had it follow
the style for the previous level (level 2 heading) ?
Thanks in advance,

I suspect you have had your cursor in the 3rd level when you revisited the outline numbering. This is a big mistake as it creates a different outline list which is not related to the first two levels.
Whenever you need to edit any level of an outline list you MUST open the dialog from a paragraph at the top level (ie Heading 1). Once you are in that dialog it is fine to go and change the level 3 entry.Andrew Lockton, Chrysalis Design, Melbourne Australia
