One of my co-workers is having a problem with numbered
subheadings and my vaunted ability to bend all word
processors to my will has failed.
I believe I've set up everything correctly in the outline
numbering formatting - the first-level Heading1 numbers
work fine. However, the second-level Heading2 numbers
start at 0 for the first digit no matter what we do. And
the instructions for pressing Tab to increment the numbers
doesn't work at all. All it does is move the heading to
subsequent tab stops.
I'm using StarOffice on UNIX if that makes any difference.
