I made three different headings, one for each numbering level. For example "1. Topic" will be always Heading 1, "1.1 Topic" will be always Heading 2 and "1.1.1 Topic" will be always Heading 3.

As you can see Table of Contents goes to 1.2.1 instead of 1.1.2 for some reason, and everything else is messed up.

How can this be fixed?

Sure, I was using this guide: http://cybertext.wordpress.com/2010/06/22/word-2007-taming-multilevel-list-numbering/

I followed only Step 1 (30 paragraphs), which was enough for me to multilevel numbering to work. I think the main problem I missed when doing it first time is I didn't put my cursor in FRONT of grayed number when selecting from "Include level number from" drop-down list.
