I am trying to get the following Heading numbering:

for Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3

Heading 1 Heading 1.1 Heading 1.1.1

automatically applied. I've tried the following , F11 for styles & formatting. Selecting each Heading, and selecting modify for each. Under "modify" I selected , "Outline & Numbering", then "Numbering X" , where X represents the heading number style. I then select "edit style" and the outline I want, then "apply" and "apply" But Heading 2 appears as Heading 2 under Heading 1, instead of Heading 1.1. Same applies to Heading 3 & 4.

Can anybody help ?

Writer have a dedicate tool for chapter numbering. You'll find it on Tools → Chapter numbering (outline numbering on old versions)

For each outline level you need to choose the correct heading style, the numbering and how many sublevels are displayed. Writer will do everything else by itself.

Under Position tab you can set the numbering alignment.

Not sure I understand the problem, but notice that on the same dialogue you can set a character style to be applied to the numbering. The limitation of course is that that character style will apply to the whole numbering + the text you set on "before" and "after".
