Sharing buttons:

okay so first of all I have here a

document which is just plain text and I

want to change the headings in this

document into numbered academic headings

in order to create chapters sections and

subsections so first of all I have here

heading 1 and heading 2 I want more

options than this so I'm going to go to

styles and then manage styles and then

recommend and I'm going to select

heading 2 and I'm going to change this

to show then heading 3 and change that

to show as well and I could have up to

nine different heading styles here I'm

only going to use the first three then

I'm going to select ok and then close

this now I have heading one two and

three here now I'm going to select this

and define new multi-level lists they're

not going to select more hair so I can

see all of my options and I'm going to

start setting up the format that I want

so I don't want it to look like this I

want the first level to be chapters so

I'm going to write chapter and then I

want the chapters to be numbered 1 2 3

then I don't want to have any indents in

any of my levels so I'm going to change

these to 0 and then ok and I want the

this to be followed by a space so before

the title there'll be a space then I'm

going to link this to heading 1 so

whenever I select heading 1 it will show

me this format and I'm going to change

the font so I'm going to make it Times

New Roman and bold and size 16 and then

I want it to be black and ok then I'm

going to select level 2 and I want for

these to be my sections so I want to

show the number of the chapter that I'm

in and then a full stop and then the

number of the section and I want this to

be followed by a space

again before the title and this I'm

going to link to heading to and I'm

gonna select the font again and make it

Times New Roman and bold and a size 10

this time and then black then okay then

I'm going to select level 3 and I want

this to show the chapter and then a full

stop then the section and a full stop

and then the number of the subsection I

want this to be followed by a space I'm

going to link this to heading 3 and then

I'm going to make the font the same

again so bold size turn and then black

then ok and ok again and now I have the

chapter 1 part but I need to change the

text in the actual title so I'm going to

make it Times New Roman and bold and

black and then I want there to be a

space afterwards as well then I'm going

to make sure I'm selected somewhere in

here and I'm going to go to heading 1

and right click and update heading 1 too

much selection then any time I select

heading 1 it will change it to be in

this format I obviously don't want that

to be a chapter I want this to be

heading 2 and I need to update the

format again for this so I'm going to

make it bold and black and then add a
