My paper is structured like this:
1. Introduction 2. Conceptual background 2.1. Definition 2.2. Delineate the Boundaries of the Research 2.3. Research Streams 2.4. Theoretical Background ...
I would like to add an automated table of content for these sections. However, when I add the heading style as demonstrated here, the font is always changed and the numbering will be lost. I don't know how to retain the format of the headings adding heading style. I tried customizing the style, but I cannot find anything about the color of the font and the numbering.
I want the table of content to be numbered on the gradation principle as well.
I use Microsoft Word 2007 on a Windows 10 computer.
