Hi, I'm working on LibreOffice

I cannot change the numbering style of headers in a master document. All the headers in my subdocuments are numbered in the Arabic style (1.1; 1.2; 1.3 ...). However, the master document that I created from these subdocuments always starts with Roman numbers (I.1; I.2; ...).

The paragraph style is the same as in my subdocuments. The field 'Format' -> 'Bullets and Numbering ...' is greyed out and not available.

Where is the fault? How can I change the style of the heading numberings in the master document into Arabic numbers?

Kind regards, Jürgen

Numbering of headings should be done in Tools - Outline Numbering and not by numbering styles.
