Save New Multilevel List /  Styles

I created a multilevel list and it looks like it created some styles.

But I don't see a place on how to save it.  

How can I save this list / style so that I can get back to it if I reboot my computer?

Can this be exported to another machine?  The current one is Windows 8.1  64bit, Microsoft Office 2013.  The one that I would like to export is Windows 8.1  32bit, Microsoft Office 2013

I am thinking that I might  just save it as a .dotx file?  And then if one of the colors is still blue, and I change it to black, it (hopefully) will ask me if I want to make the changes to the template?

Thank you!

First you name the new styles of your list, second you crate a new Template (My_list.docm) and third you add these styles to this new template

Name the new styles of your list :
First, select a Level 1 para (1)
On the Home tab ->Styles arrow (2) to see the Styles pane (3)
On the Styles pane click on the New icon (4)
Give this style a meaningful  title (5), ex. L1Multi, L2Multi,...L1Multi, L2Multi,...
Open Normal.dotm template and create a new My_list.dotm and save.

Add these styles to this new template:
On the Styles pane (3), click on Manage Styles icon (6)
Manage Styles pane -> Import/Export (7)
Organizer pane Close file/Open file My_list.dotm (8)
Navigate to the new styles (9)
Copy to My_list.docx styles to new MyListTemplate.dotm (10)Multilevel list in template
If you create a new document with MyListTemplate.dotm, your new multilevel list styles will now be available....

To send to an Office 2003 environment, SAVE AS MyListTemplate.dot.

I am pretty much with you until the styles.
stylesI have it like this.  When I click the arrow on the side of the styles in the header, I get this:
Open StylesI don't see the 6 / 7 ...  it looks like your layout might be different than mine.
word 2013 header
I see that at some point you say export, can that .dotm be copied just as well?

OK - I see you have renamed Heading1 to correspond to 1. AbB, Heading2 to correspond to (A) AbB and Heading3 to correspond to (i) AbB.

This multilevel list exists ONLY in the document you have just created.

In fact I suggested to create a NEW .dotm template from Normal.dotm and SAVE AS MyListTemplate.dotm, THEN copy the ONLY the heading styles to this new template!

WHY? So that the only changes with respect to the Normal.dotm are those made to Heading1, Heading2, and Heading3.

However, you CAN save the document you have just created as MyListTemplate.dotm, but make sure that you save it in the same folder as all your other Word templates!

Well I did not mean to do anything with the styles, they were just sort of created.  I mean, when I went in and created the lists, the styles were created I guess (when I named them header etc).  and they were light blue.  So I went in and changed those to black..  When I went to save it - I had saved I as both .dotx and .dotm - it automatically went to something like Documents - Custom Office Templates.  I hope that was / is OK because the computer got tired and crashed finally - I am not really used to laptops and this is my first (Windows 8.1 64bit 4G RAM 128GB SSD)

I try to work on my PC which is larger, this laptop was supposed to be Samsung's top of the line (XE700T1A) when Microsoft Store sold it to us and we bought an extra two yr warranty to cover everything but now they are saying they don't carry this model anymore and I am having a problem with them trying to replace it.

Well it seems to be in the right place - I can open it, but if I need to change a style or the list, the only option it seems to be is create a new list again

Use the Styles pane as above, when you modify a style:Modify StyleAll the paragraphs IN THIS DOCUMENT with the style Heading 1 will change...

You can create more than one multilevel list in a document! Each should have unique names:

A-Level1, A-Level2, A-Level3, ... A-Leveln
B-Level1, B-Level2, B-Level3, ... B-Leveln
C-Level1, C-Level2, C-Level3, ... C-Leveln

If you want to change your Heading 1 style to that of A-Level1, place the cursor on a paragraph with A-Level1 and do as I showed above: Update Heading 1 to Match Selection!
