Q: can't modify multilevel list style This thread is locked from future replies

I went through the laborious process of attaching headings to a multilevel list style as recommended by Shauna Kelly.  When I want to change the multilevel list style, I could sometimes right click on the style in the dropdown menu for multilevel list.  However, when I right click on the style now, the only option that appears is "Remove from List Library." 

How can I modify the style?

Thank you.

Answer

A:

Only list formats that appear under "List styles" (at Home tab | Multilevel List) can be edited via the context/right-click menu.

For any other list, do the following: Place the insertion point in the first level 1 paragraph of the list (for heading numbering, this means the first Heading 1 paragraph of the document). Then click Home tab | Multilevel List | Define New Multilevel List.

Obviously, the "Define New..." command is misleading; it doesn't actually create a new list assuming that you follow the above instructions. Instead, it opens the multilevel list dialog box. For more on the options, read http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/numbering/numbering20072010.html.
