Inconsistencies with Indents on Custom List Styles
In your sample document you numbered Headings by using just a
multilevel list - not a list style.
After that you applied your list style ("YouTube Video Outline") to the
After removing the list style from the document, and pressing Ctrl + Q,
the Headings will get back their own numbering, which seems to be
similar to your list style.

styles (e. g.
Or use just the list style, to number paragraphs. But don't mix it,
like you did. And for a complex document never use multilevel lists -
use list styles instead.
For your information:
The problem I am having deals with understanding how
Word recognizes the "Aligned at:" and "Text Indent at:"
fields when they are applied to different outline levels
(Level 1, Level 2, etc.).
I think, it's clear now, isn't it?
The problem is that I am seeing different settings
for the same level which seems to depend on which
level I start at.
After choosing "List style | modify", the next step is "Format |
Numbering...". In the first dialog box you must not choose anything
different from "Format". Do not choose any other entry in the list
"Apply formatting to" - leave there the entry "Level 1".
Otherwise you will change the indents.
