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?
