Formatting and multilevel lists

M

MuppetBaby

Hi all, hope you can help as I've wandered around the net for almost a day
now trying to resolve this for myself!

I am trying to construct a multilevel list that accommodates multiple
formatting options for the same list level e.g.

1 Heading (BOLD AND CAPS)
1.1 Paragraph
1.2 Paragraph
1.3 Sub Heading (BOLD)
1.3.1 Paragraph
1.3.2 Paragraph
1.3.3 Sub Sub Heading (BOLD)
1.3.3.1 Paragraph
1.3.3.2 Paragraph
2 Heading (BOLD AND CAPS)
2.1 Sub Heading (BOLD)
2.1.1 Paragraph
2.1.2 Sub Sub Heading (BOLD)
2.1.2.1 Paragraph

Sometimes the paragraph will be first, sometimes the sub / sub sub heading
will be first. I've seen lots of advice relating to defining a new
multilevel list and have tried a few variants but somehow I can't get the
numbering to follow on. I end up with, for example:

1 Heading (BOLD AND CAPS)
1.1 Paragraph
1.2 Paragraph
1.1 Sub Heading (BOLD)

Set up you Heading numbering by following the instructions in the article on
the following page of fellow MVP Shauna Kelly's website

http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/numbering/OutlineNumbering.html

Then, for the 1.3.1 and 1.3.2 paragraphs, define a new style that is based
on the Heading 3 style and modify the formatting in that style to suit (that
is not bold). The new style will automatically inherit the numbering from
Heading 3 and while I find it a bit illogical to mix both style under the
one Heading 2 paragraph, they will quite happily co-exist.

Hi Markus,

thanks for the reply. I'm quite happy doing this manually but I'm trying to
set up either a template document or a quick style set for my team to use.
All the guidance I've found for 2007 so far suggests that this is only
possible using multilevel lists.

Hi Doug,

thanks for the reply. I have this working in an individual document, but as
soon as I try to turn it into a template or quick style the '1.2' and '1.2.1'
paragraphs lose their formatting.

How are you creating the template, exactly? Assuming that you have set up
the styles/numbering correctly, it should be as uncomplicated as saving the
file as a Word template.

Hi Stefan,

thanks for the reply.

I created the template using a blank word doc, modifying sytles Heading 1,2
& 3 in relation to font style, size, colour, bold, caps or not etc; creating
body 1, 2 & 3 and bullet 1, 2 & 3 sytles, altering the font style, size
(these are not bold).

The paragraph formats for all were set to 0 left alignment special none.

Then using the multilevel list I attempted to get all nine levels in and
working with the correct alignment, spacing and numbering. What I struggled
to work out is how to get two different styles which carry the same numbering
level into the multlevel so that they can both be used in either order e.g.

1 HEADING 1
1.1 Non Bold (Body1)
1.2 Bold (Heading 2)
1.2.1 Non Bold (Body 2)
1.2.2 Bold (Heading 3)
1.2.2.1 Non Bold (Body 3)

or

1 HEADING 1
1.1 Bold (Heading 2)
1.2 Non Bold (Body1)
1.2.1 Bold (Heading 3)
1.2.2 Non Bold (Body 2)
1.2.2.1 Non Bold (Body 3)

I managed to get Heading 1, 2 & 3, Body 3 and Bullet 1, 2 & 3 into the
multilist. Then following Doug's advice based Body 1 & 2 on Heading 2 & 3.

I then saved it as a word template. The levels all work fine in the open
template, but as soon as I create a new document from the template, or use
the template as a new quick style Body 1 & 2 lose their formatting.

Hope this makes sense!

I don't know why you are losing the numbering; usually the described method
should work.

Note, however, that if you try to modify the *numbering* of a "child" style,
the numbering will disappear from the "parent" (based-on) style, but that
isn't relevant for your situation.

As suggested by Doug earlier in the thread, you'll have to make use of the based
on feature; that's the only way a style can "inherit" the numbering from a
numbered style.

Alternatively, use *character styles* to format the text as desired.

Hi everyone, thanks for the advice in this thread, it has solved a very long standing problem for me - almost! Having followed the advice above I can get the paragraph numbers and the heading numbers to go in sequence, but isthere any way to ensure that the paragraph numbers themselves are formatted to match the paragraph text, rather than matching the heading text as they were originally designed to do in the list building stage?

Hope you can help...

By default, the list numbers should match the formatting of the rest of the
paragraph. If necessary, you can click directly on the list number (in Word 2007
or later); all numbers at the same list level will be selected, and you can then
change the font properties as you would when ordinary text is selected.
