So my problem is similar to this one except for the fact that I don't need a header, but only the subheaders, is there a way to set a list with just sub headers?


1.1. Heading 1 of item 1
1.2. Heading 2 of item 1
2.1. Heading 1 of item 2
2.2. Heading 2 of item 2
3.1. etc
3.2. etc

Can you do this in word? I have search extensively on how to do it, but I find no answer whatsoever.

I don't think you can do this with just one list - there's no way for Word to know when you were switching items to restart headings? You could create multiple lists, with no space between them . . . – ernie Dec 13 '12 at 7:39

I believe this is what you want - Type 1. and press space once - type your first point, main heading, or whatever you'd like.

Press Enter. It should say 2.. Backspace once, type 1.1., space, then your text. Press enter and it should go to 1.2.. When you want to go to 2 instead of 1.x., just backspace the 1.x., type 2., and then space - and repeat the process for 2.x..

Hope this helps.

Note: If you want to start with 1.1. (which I think was your question), just type 1.1. and then space - then the next line will be 1.2., it's basically the same process just leaving off the 1..
