MS Word Numbering level not incrementing correctly. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a heading level that is numbered. I was up to number 14. Every time I added another one it incremented by 1.

    Then I copied a section including one of these headings after the number 14.

    Instead of becoming number 15, it reverted to number 1.

    I tried the 'set numbering' dialog and 'continue current list' but it makes no sense to me, cannot figure out how it is supposed to work.

    How Microsoft makes something that should be so simple, so complex is mind-boggling.

    How do I get this heading back to number 15?

    I hope someone can let me in on the 'secret'.

    Thanks.
