I have an issue with multi-level lists. I have setup 5 levels of heading styles, each have been setup with multi-level numbered lists. In the style preview they show as they should initially.
I saved the document and then reopened it later. And much to my frustration Levels 4 and 5 headers now had lost their numbering! They also wouldn't detect where they were in the multi-level list sequence when I attempted to "continue numbering" and add the numbering back in. Thankfully, I had the numbering in another document and was able to use the format painter to manually go through every single level 4 and 5 header and add the numbering back in correctly.
I then saved the document and reopened it. This time level 5 had lost its numbering, both in the style preview and in the document? Why can I save a document a certain way and then open it and have it be different? It makes my life extremely difficult...
Am I missing something in this process?
I note if I go into the styles I cannot select to use a multi-levelled list. I only have a choice for simple numbered or bullets. If I modify a style that is showing the correct numbering there is nothing in the style that seems to store this information and this I think is why it keeps dropping out...
To me this seems like an extremely frustrating bug, is their a fix?Kind Regards, Chris Price
