Hi Sally,

I'm not great Word expert, but I have dabbled many times with multilevel
lists. Not sure what you'll have tried, but there are many and confusing
ways to get tangled up in multi-level lists. I think I've found most of
Anyway, if the multi-level list is a true multi-level list (and not a
sneaky formatting fudge) click in the second level list item ( the 1.1
stuff) and then select 'Define New Multilevel List' from the multilevel
list drop-down menu. The secrets of the levels should then be revealed -
you can check and change all the levels in that dialog.


P.S. You can remove stuff from the numbering library by right-clicking
and selecting Remove.

Hi, everyone. I've been blessed with not having to use Word as an
tool, so my skills are not as advanced as many of you. I'm using Word

I've downloaded a document template that I need to modify for use by the
whole company. The template has some number list 'magic' that I can't
replicate. The document does not appear to use any styles other than
headings and Normal. I would like to create the appropriate styles so I
fix formatting from other authors before the docs are released.

The doc has a 3-column table.

*Step * *Action* *Individual*
1 Do this thing I. Matt Falt
1.1 step 1 of thing
1.2 step 2 of thing

2 Do thing 2 I. Matt Falt
2.1 step 1 of thing 2
2.2 step 2 of thing 2
2.3 step 3 of thing 2

It the numbering in the Action column that I need help with. It behaves
like the second level of a multilevel list, but where is the value of
one being set? The content in the Step column is text using the Normal
style. How do I add 'thing 3' and get the numbered (3.x) steps to do

Free free to contact me directly if this is an idiot lesson that the
rest of
the list doesn't need. ;-)

Thank you in advance!


P.S. While I have you thinking about numbered lists, is it possible to
remove something from the Numbering Library?
