Thanks for this response, but actually, I am looking for outlining, not numbered headings. I am creating a real outline (I, II, III, A, B, C, I, ii, iii, etc). To get there I go to Format>Bullets and Numbering …> and then I go to the Outline tab in the dialog box and select the outline I want (the bottom left corner).
But that outline style has some formatting issues. When the number (like VIII or XIV) becomes too long, it pushes the text to the second tab, adding too much space between the number and the text. So I have gone in to the “Position” tab of the dialog and change the Numbering Alignment from “left” to “right” to use a right-tab for the numbers. This makes the alignment more consistent.
But for each outline I create, I have to go in and manually make those changes. I cannot find a way to save that particular outlining format for future use. If I could save it in a template or styles, that would be great and I could select that outline every time.
Thanks for the response and the help.
