Hi there.

 

I have a document with several styles of headings, one of which ("Heading 1 Section") uses a numbered list  in capital letters prior to the heading. At some point I discovered that two consecutive headings bear the same letter ("C"). "B" precedes the first "C" and "D" follows the second "C".

Even the TOC displays 2 "C"s.

The style.

I have toggled a different style on all headings involved to no avail. I cannot figure out how to reset the sequence to continue number properly (A,B,C,D...).

 

I have been working on this file a few weeks and just discovered this today.

 

Help, please and thanks. My intel

First thing I would do is define a list name for your headings.Your list is using the default list and most likely, another numbering system is getting added. If you define a separate list, you can set it to continue over all stories--plus the list will be isolated from other lists.

Hi there.

I did try that earlier today and just retried again with a completely unique name. Changed it in the TOC etc. No dice.

Any other ideas? And thanks so much for responding so quickly.

Can you let us know what the solution was for other users that might have the same problem in the future?

Sure thing. As you suggested, I created a new list (instead of using the Default), allowing me to Continue Numbers across Stories.
