Numbering Heading Styles

If you use the pre-defined heading styles provided by Word, such as those that appear in the Normal.dot template (Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3), you can also optionally number headings with a format of your choosing. Some examples of the proper times to use numbered headings include legal documents, scientific or other academic papers, and so forth. Consult the Formatting and Styles guide of the institution you are preparing the document for to determine whether this formatting is preferred.

Create a Numbered Heading Using Styles

In your document, position the cursor where you want to place the numbered heading.

Click the Format menu‚ and then click Bullets And Numbering.

Click the Outline Numbered tab.

Click a numbering format that contains the text “Heading 1”, “Heading 2”, and so on, and then click OK.

Click the Styles and Formatting button on the Formatting toolbar, and then select the heading style that you want.

Type the text of the heading, and then press Enter.
