    Outline Numbering, copy sample (2002)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by acerfmayer on 19-Dec-06 17:14. )</P>Hi -
    (I can insert the "correct" sample into a blank new document, but not into an existing document)

    I can't figure out how to copy an Outline Numbered sample. I do copy/paste, indicate to keep Soource Formatting, but when pasted, I do not see the levels (Level 1=1; Level 2=1.1 of Level 2, etc.). All that is copied over is the text within the levels.

    Thank you.

    I can't reproduce the error, whether I paste into a new document or into an existing document. Does the problem occur for you in all documents, or just in a single one?

    Hans - I should have checked that before I posted.

    Yes, it copies into other existing files. But....not the one where I want it. I imagine that means corruption in that file. I further imagine I then have to copy and paste several pages at a time, try the insertion, and continue until I find where the insertion doesn't appear correctly.....
    I did try inserting the possibly corrupt file into a new blank file, but the sampe file still didn't paste correctly.

    Unless, of course, there is another way to determine where the corruption lies.

    Thanks, Hans.

    Try the following on a copy of the problem document (just to make sure):
    - Can you set outline numbering for existing text?
    - Does it work correctly?

    Morning, Hans -

    I've been playing with inserting the sample and was successful, finally, when I pasted the sample in the document and then went to Format/Bullet & Numbering and clicked the appropriate list. The sample conformed to what it "should" be.

    Thanks for all your guidance. And, Happy Holidays.
