Default Customized numbered outline not working

I customized an outline numbered list to be the way I want it & it works fine
on my computer, but when I did the same thing on another computer, it doesn't
work. I want level one to format as 1.1. So when I go to the next paragraph
it should be 2.1 and again it works fine on one computer. However on another
computer, using the same setup, the paragraphs will all start with 1.1.
Also is there a way to have it go 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc. Instead of 1.1, 2.1,
2.3.
Thank you!

Unless your numbering scheme is linked to styles, it will not be portable.
