Missing numbering for a specific heading level RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a persistent problem in a document in that the numbering for the third level heading is missing, despite the settings being ok and despite palying with them repeatedly.

    What could be the solution?

  • Hi,

    Was this issue occurred with every Word file or the particular file? And which version of Word do you use?

    As far as I know, for example in Word 2013, all the built-in heading styles have a Recommend level of 10 and are set to be displayed in the Styles gallery, but all the heading levels below Heading 1 are also set to "Hide Until Used."

    Please check the "Show next heading when previous level is used" is enabled.

  • How was numbering created? The first step is to make sure that you set it up properly according to the instructions at http://shaunakelly.com/word/numbering/numbering20072010.html.
