Multilevel numbering

I previosuly sent Marius the template i have to work with that does not seem to allow multilevel numbering within the table because of the tab function. Is there a way around that?

RE: Multilevel numbering

Hello Bridget,

Thank you for your question, apologies for the wait! I have found a solution to multi level numbering in a Word table without using the Tab key.

Here are the steps:

- Click in a table cell, then select Multi Level Numbering from the Home ribbon.
- The initial value will be 1. If you'd like to change this (e.g. to 2), select the number, right-click and set the numbering value.
- If you want to change the level, e.g. to 2.1, you need to click the Multi Level Numbering button in the Home ribbon, then select Change List Level. This will promote or demote the numbering level.

You will need to reapply this process in any other table cells you wish to number.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards
Marius Barnard

Word tip:

Check The Text Style Used

For people who use styles there is a quick way of checking which style has been used on text.

Press Shift-F1. The cursor turns to a question mark and pointer.

Click in the text you want to know about and Word opens the 'Reveal Formatting' task pane showing all the information on the style (its font, formatting and so on).
