Style family Heading n is used for “traditional” numbering with chapters, sub-chapters, … When you start a new chapter, sub-level is reset to one like:
- .1. Chapter (styled Heading 1)
- .1.1 Sub-chapter (Heading 2)
- .1.2 Sub-chapter
- .2. Chapter (Heading 1 again)
- .2.1 Sub-chapter (Heading 2)
All Heading n are processed in this manner, no matter what you may try to stick with usual chapter numbering rule.
Your articles belong in an independent sequence. You must then use styles different from Heading n.
I suggest you style your article paragraph with Numbering 1 to create a new list.
However, CAUTION! Numbering 1 as configured out-o-the-box does not behave as a list driver. You must first customise it a bit.
Open the style side pane:
Styles & Formatting or
F11 or click on the double T icon in the right vertical toolbar
Look for Numbering 1 style, right-click and
Outline & Numbering tab, select
Numbering 1 from *Numbering styles` drop-down menu
Now give paragraph style Numbering 1 to your articles.
The numbering itself may be customised through so-called list style Numbering 1 accessible through a click on the fifth small icon in the styles pane toolbar.
Your question did not mention if your articles should be listed in the TOC.
Since they are not Heading n, they can’t be directly merged with the TOC. However, you can create a special index for them.
Where you want this table to appear,
Insert>``Table of Contents & Index
>Table of Contents, Index or Bibliography`
User-Defined from Type drop-down menu
2.2 Check Styles in Create from
2.4 In the dialog which pops up, select Numbering 1 and push
>> to put it in level 1; click
You can customise the appearance of entries in the
Entries tab but the default settings are usually correct
OK, your table is there.
To edit the table (title, entries or others), right-click in the index and choose
