Problem using custom outline numering styles with custom heading styles

There is a problem when you try to assign a custom outline numbering style to a custom heading style.
When you apply the CustomHeading2 (level2) it :

  • will be treated as a 2nd level Heading (confirmed by the navigator window);
  • BUT will firstly be numbered as a Level1 unless you demote it one level using TAB or the toolbar button.

I repeated what I understood from your question using 4.3.2. portable on XP and found no problem. Could you please explain the steps you took and what the result was. Please also provide screen shots of your settings and results.
