Hi. I can't figure out how to format outline numbering in my document. For example, my level 2 heading text is Arial 10 bold but the numbering is TNR 10 non-bold and I can't figure how out to change it. Thanks, Grainne

Hi Grainne, and welcome to the DCT Forum! Smile

I have no idea about your question. Sorry, what I know about Word and its features could be written on the back of a postage stamp.

I'll see if I can rustle up someone in the know... Stand by!

Cheers... Jim

Like many problems with Word 2010, this one can be resolved by the right-click/context menu method. If you right-click on one of the outline numbers, you will get a context menu on which one of the options is Font. Change the font from there, and it will be changed for the entire numbering for that outline level. This also works from Outline View.

Alternatively, you can click on one of the numbers or letters on the level you are interested in, then select the font from the drop-down Font box on the Home tab.

More useful Word 2010 help can be found at Unfortunately the eponymous lady is now deceased, but her friends continue to maintain the site in her memory and because it is so useful. may also be helpful.

I realise this is probably a bit late for you, but I'm posting it for the record anyway in case it helps anyone else.
