Tab key not decreasing indent in numbering

In my Word 2010 document that I've attached, I have the Outline Hanging Indent numbering scheme applied. I used to be able to just press the tab key so something that was a level 1 heading would become a level 2 heading etc. Now, when I press tab, all I get is the heading moved in 5 spaces like a regular tab without changing the heading level.

Thanks,

Works here. Word 2013
If I press Tab (or SHIFT+Tab) the indentation and the list number changes (to A, 1, etc)

HTH,
Dan

Found the problem. See the picture
AutoCorrectYou need to make sure "Set left and first indent with tabs and backspaces" is checked
You get there from File->Options->Proofing->Autocorrect
