Microsoft Word: Manage Multilevel List

Microsoft Word defines the default Multilevel List. You may want to modify it to look different from the existing library. I found it's very difficult to manage the list from the context menu.

There is a function to manage it easier. Please check this sample to get some idea.

Environment: Microsoft Word 2010

  • Put the cursor at the list that you want to define new style. Select "Home" tab, click at "Multilevel List" button. And then, select "Define New Multilevel List...".
  • You can change the style of the list in any level you want by selecting the level first in "Click level to modify" list box. And then, select style in "Number style for this level" dropdown list.
  • If you want to include the number of top level, you can select the top level in "Include level number from" dropdown list.
  • It will insert the top level in front of the current number. You can change the position by putting the cursor after the current number or move those value to the position that you want.
  • Modify the format. In my case, I add "." in between those levels and remove "." from the back.
  • You can set the position of the list by assign the number in "Aligned at" text box.
  • Also, you can set the indent position for the selected level in "Text indent at" text box.
  • Click "OK" to save your settings.
