I'm trying to add a multi-level numbering Style in Word 2016.
The Define New Number Format dialog (see image) appears to enable this.
But how does it work?
The text box to enter a style functions but appears to have a purely cosmetic effect (see red highlight in attached image); whatever you change does not affect the numbering style, it's just added in as static text.
Define New Number Format dialog:
(link removed because I lack rep)
I made progress by creating headings from scratch and giving them a Multilevel List format and then making them into Styles.
Right-clicking the numbering segment appears to give a useable dialog menu but there is a mysterious "4" (I don't know why it's not "3" for example) appearing there and sometimes in different positions in the dialog (see attached image). Can anyone figure out how to get Heading 2 behaving the same as all the others?
_It's specifically selecting "Update Style to Match Selection" that changes the second level numbering to a "4"... how can updating a style to match the selection affect the selection itself?!
I fixed the "4" but discovered that it still appears in the dialog box after being changed back to "1" and the style updated... can anyone figure out why?
