A couple months ago I thought I was going to be working with numbered paragraph styles regularly and worked with this list to create the following macros instead of having to rely on Word's auto-numbering.
I've not been working with these at all since setting them up and now I'm jumping back in again. Now I see that I'm going to need to adjust these a bit.
First off I need to be able to start the autonumbering somewhere other than 1 (see previous post).
Next (and this IS embarassing), I need to add a 4th level head that will track the previous heading levels. I'm probably trying to run through this too fast, but looking at the 3 macro's I've got, I don't see what's making them nest. They work, but how?
H1 produces 1.0
H2 produces 1.1
H3 produces 1.1.1
H4 needs to produce 126.96.36.199.
Can somebody shine a bright light through my feeblemindedness? I see a difference between H1 and H2, but other than the name, I don't see a difference between H2 and H3 so I can add another level (H4).
