I have several "heading 1"s and then several subheadings (heading 2; heading 3) within each heading 1. I want Open Office to automatically number them as follows:

1.
1.1
1.2.
1.2.1.

etc.

I've tried everything (outline numbering, defining numbering for each heading) and I cannot get the numbers to display in the hierarchy. Instead, Heading 1 number correctly, but Heading 2 entries number sequentially instead of in relationship to Heading 1.

Help! I've combed the Help manuals and the forums and I'm still confused. I must have some little thing wrong.

In Tools > Outline Numbering select each Level below 1 and set the Show Sublevels box to the number of that particular Level. You should see the numbering as you want it in the preview window on the right.

Thanks so much! I really thought I had tried that already, but I followed your instructions (nothing more) and everything finally updated correctly. You saved me alot of frustration Smile
