couldnt break numbering link

Copper Contributor

I have a numbering list with 7.1, 7.2 upto 7.11. Now I need a sublist 7.11.1 & 7.11.2 and continue with 7.12. When I define or select 7.11.1, the whole list starts with 7.11.1. I tried first restart at 1 and then selected the 7.11.1. But something repeats. Could someone respond fast with a solution please.

See the article "How to create numbered headings or outline numbering in your Microsoft Word document" on the following page of the Late Shauna Kelly's website:


You need to select the first item in your list (assumed to be Item 1) and then access the "Define New Multilevel List dialog and set up the third level numbering 1.1.1 and link it to the Heading 3 style.
