I have a large-ish document (1.5MB, 105 pages) with headings provided by formatting styles. Everything was fine until some point in a recent edit and now the first H1 heading is 4 (the second 5 and so on).

I've right clicked and selected Set Numbering Value at set it to 1, but it refuses to budge.

Any tips? Thanks

Change the H1 style definition.

Base the H1 on (no style) instead of Normal.

Then the Set Number Value function will work properly.

You should link your heading levels with list levels. Do it via: Paragraph - Multilevel list - define new Multilevel list. Press "More"...
