It looks like the numbering is calculated automatically, but we can work around this by formatting the numbering for Heading 1 so that it cannot be seen.

  1. In the Character Styles sidebar, right-click on Default Style and choose New. Name it "Hidden".
  2. Font Size: 2, Font color: white, check Hidden, OK.
  3. Format -> Bullets and Numbering -> Customize. Level 1, Character style: "Hidden".
  4. Go to Position tab. Level 1, Numbering followed by: Nothing.
