Word Outline View - How to Show Level within selected text?

Hello - in Outline View of Word 2016, is there a way to "Show Level" within selected text?
For instance, if I select a given Level 1 block, is there a way to  "Show Level" 3 within only that Level 1?

'Collapse the selected item' (minus sign) is about the closest thing.

You could try this VBA macro:
Sub ShowHideLevel()
    Dim para As Paragraph
    Dim iLevel As Integer
    
    iLevel = 2
    If ActiveWindow.View.Type = wdOutlineView Then
        ActiveWindow.View.ShowHiddenText = False
        For Each para In ActiveWindow.Document.Paragraphs
            para.Range.Font.Hidden = (para.OutlineLevel > iLevel)
        Next para
    End If
End Sub
