Word 2007 Heading 1 outdent

In Word 2007, I'm using the default numbering scheme for outlines (i.e., it's the one that appeared after my recent install).

Heading 1 is roman numerals.  The roman numeral seems to want to outdent to the left of the page margin.  When I change the style on the "I" to align with the page margin (using the Paragraph>Indent>Left field) then when I get to the "II" entry it is still outdented (a little less).  It seems like Word is anticipating long roman numerals, so it is outdenting to make room for them (or something).

What I would like is for the Heading 1 numbers to align with the page margin.  

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Select the paragraphs with the numbering. Then using Home tab -> Numbering -> Define New Number Format.

Select the value Left for the Alignment option: Left aligned

If the above is NOT whant, then select Right in step 3.
