    Migraine - subheading numbering refuses to follow previous level

    Hi all,

    My problem is simple to explain . . . to solve, maybe not.

    An example:

    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,
    David G.

    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.
