Default Outline numbering - headings and no-headings on same level

Hello,

I am quite familiar with using styles, headings, TOCs and so on. But there
is one thing I have been trying to figure out for some time:

For example, I have in a document 4 heading levels:

1.
1.1
1.1.1
1.1.1.1

Usually, all those heading levels actually refer to proper HEADINGS, i.e. a
couple of words that fill less than one line and appear in the TOC. However,
sometimes there are WHOLE PARAGRAPHS that need to be numbered, like this:

1. (heading)
1.1 (heading)
1.1.1 (heading)
1.1.2 (heading)
1.1.1.1 (heading)
2. (heading)
2.1 (heading)
2.1.1 (paragraph)
2.1.2 (paragraph)

Obviously, the numbered paragraphs must not appear in the TOC, so I must
probably apply some no-heading style. But that's were my problem actually
starts:
I can't figure out how to continue my outline numbering from the headings in
the numbered paragraphs. If I apply a different numbered style on the
paragraph that should be "2.1.1" (and make it "level 3") I get "1.1.1"
instead. I do hope there is a solution for this.

Thank you.

If numbering is attached to the heading styles (see
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/numb...umbering.html), you can
base the non-heading style on the appropriate heading style; that way, they
will both share the same numbering level.

If you don't want to base the non-heading style on a heading one, you can
use LISTNUM fields instead. This will be more flexible, since you can
specify the level as you insert the field (via the Field dialog box). Also,
you can right-click a field and use Increase Indent or Decrease Indent to
change the numbering level.

Note, however, that LISTNUM fields always reflect the numbering of the
"current" list, which means they will be easier to maintain if there is only
one list (the one attached to the headings) in the document.
