I am trying to set numbering in two formats for nested numbering.

The first is level 1

1.0

Level 2

1.1

Level 3

1.1.1

The other is Level 1

1.0

Level 2

a

Level 3

i

Can anyone help me with the steps to set this up. All of the info I have gone throu so far is mostly level 1 and

In the second example these are regulations the numbering is complicated but follows a pattern: 

Level 1 is number 1

Level to is alphabetical lower case a

Level 3 is Roman numeral which is lower case starting at i

 

Sometimes the first paragrah is not numbered as in the above case. In the example above they started at a and used the level 3

and restarted numbering. Right now I have manually made the entries as I think it may be to complicated to to try automate it.

 

My main need is to number heading level for three levels similar to the first example.

Please start by reading this post on how to set up nested lists. This will directly address the second example. https://www.rockymountaintraining.com/adobe-indesign-basic-nested-lists/ Here are screen shots for the first example. Four levels, four paragraph styles, one named List. I called mine "Heads". ~Barb

Hi Barb,

Thanks this helped me out. I am now trying to get a TOC to function correctly using the three levels which is not going well.

It seems to be picking up numbering behind each level as well as duplicating the number level.

It is adding 08.08...etc and duplicating the level numbers 1 1., 2. 2. etc... In some cases, it is pulling in paragraph content near the end of the second page.

I have three levels and there all just a title line. I am going to take a closer look to see if the level styles are potentially part of the style.

As to the 08 after each line I have no idea where that is coming froim.

Regards,

Pat

Hi @Thunder_man1234:

 

This is a new question on the TOC—please post this in a new post, and include a screen shot with  Table of Contents dialog open, and More Options enabled, along with a visual of your TOC misbehaving. We can help you, but we will need more information.
