Creating Report-Style Numbered Headings In Mac Pages

If you need the headings in your document to be automatically numbered, you can adapt the numbered lists styles and the ability to continue from the previous number to accomplish this. The result isn't ideal, but it can be a life-saver in long documents with many headings as the numbers will change automatically as you add and remove headings.

    Thanks for this, Gary. I've always been frustrated by the numbered paragraphs and bullets settings of Pages when compared to Word. You provide a great overview of how to get around these limitations. One feature in Word that I miss in particular is the one that allows selection of a style (such as "normal") to automatically follow a heading style by default. Doing all this seems so much easier on Word, even automatic in many cases.

    This is great, actually a much simpler approach than MS Word - thanks Gary!
