Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts on what to do to get Word's
outline numbering working correctly?

I've followed all the instructions in the 7 rules... double-checked
everything, and still, when I renumber to 1, the list automatically moves to
0.5" indent instead of 0.25", and takes all styles in that outline list out
0.5" as well. Totally weird...

Of course, if I make my body text style a permanent 0.25" indent, then all
is well, but I don't need that much indentation for this set of documents...
