@Ali Raza welcome to Confluence!

In the editor you can select numbering or bullet points. If you want to nest a number, you simply TAB at the beginning of the line you want to nest. When you want to come back to the main or a sub heading, hold SHIFT+TAB to bring the editor back.

Here is an example using this editor:

  1. Main heading
    1. Sub Heading of Main heading
      1.  Further sub heading
  2. Main Heading
    1. Sub Heading of Main heading
      1. Further sub heading

Before TAB

  1. Main Heading
    1.1. After Tab

After Tab 1.1.

a. Main Heading

after tab

Can you guide me on google meet call?

@Ali Raza I’d love to help. I am currently in transit and not available to at the moment. Is this something that we can schedule for tomorrow?

Sure issue is resolved but need some more help in one case.

I am curious why you want numbered headings in online resource? This was a print construct for easy referencing, but now we have hyperlinking, and can send direct links for reference.

But if you need numbering, I have used this plugin when users insisted on number:

It will easily do the type of numbering you want and is preserved on export.
