Numbered paragraphs following Heading


P

PLDV

Hi, Stefan (or another helper): I thought I'd resolved this problem of
creating numbered paragraphs which followed a previous Heading level number.
However, the solution provided by Pamelia & yourself breaks the Heading style
for lower
Heading levels. For example: If I create a multilevel list style for
paragraphs that are numbered based on Heading 2 & in the Define new
Multilevel list dialog box, "Link level to style" to "List Number" & then
define a 2nd Multilevel List also based on Heading 2 & link that to List
Number 2, then the previously defined style for Headings 3 & 4 reverts to the
Heading 1 style. Is there some other setting in the "Define new Multilevel
list" dialog box which must be set to prevent this change to Headings 3 & 4
styles?? I need to be able to use Heading style 3 & 4 independent of the
multilevel list which I only want to work based on the Heading 2 style.
Clearly, I'm missing 'something'. Thanks for helping me to understand the
logic of this area.

Well, I read the MVP article on "Word's numbering explained (by John McGhie).
Now I understand a little more about why this area is fraught with difficulty
& 'landmines'. But there may still be a solution to my seemingly simple & not
uncommon need?? In the meantime I'll use the 'dormant' Heading 6-8 styles for
covering these needs. Sigh! Leszek Vincent

No, you're not missing something, but I was. You didn't say that you had
headings beyond heading 2.

Assigning numbering levels to nonheading styles to make your "autorestart"
lists won't work if you don't have enough heading levels free. You can have
as many as 6 headings levels (remember to include any numbered appendix
headings in that count) and still have three numbering levels free. I
suggest you link numbering levels 7, 8, and 9 to your list styles.

HTH,
Pam
