I'm attempting to create a list like this:
1 Level 1
1.1 Level 2
1.2 Level 2
1.3 Level 2
2 Level 1
2.1 Level 2
2.1.1 Level 3
2.1.2 Level 3
2.1.3 Level 3
However, this is happening:
Whatever I try, level 3 restarts at 1, so for example I get 1.1.1 instead of 2.2.1.
I'm using three numbered list paragraph styles as follows:
I'm utterly confused why this isn't working.
Can anyone suggest what's going wrong?
Your third screenshot shows that your Level 3 points to a *different* list. Make it the same list as the other two (in your case, choose Level 2 - Multi-level.)
When you make a different custom named LIST, you are instructing InDesign to number differently and independently of your current list pattern.
Michael, thank you!! Seems so obvious now you say it.
