Word 2010 multilevel list, can't tie level 3 to heading 3
Posted on 2012-04-10
I'm writing a document and am required to use a document template as my starting point. The document is structured as a multilevel list, with numbered section headings, but the template is less well formed -- no multilevel list has been defined.
I want to use a multilevel list.
Heading styles 1-9 are defined. Headings 1 and 2 are paragraph styles. Headings 3-9 are both paragraph and character styles.
When linking a list level to a style, I want to link level 3 to Heading 3. Heading 3 doesn't show up in the list of styles that I can link too. I believe this is because Heading 3 is both a character and paragraph style.
I can't modify Heading 3's style type...the pulldown list is greyed out and shows "Linked (paragraph and character).
I have two questions:
1) Short of deleting the .dot file for this document (or other radical surgery) is there some way I can change Heading 3's style?
2) Am I wrong about believing that my multilevel list problem is due to Heading 3's style?
