How it is possible to have multi level paragraph numbering?

It is very comon to have need for such paragraph numbering:


 1. sth

    1.1. sth

    1.2. sth
        1.2.1 and so on.

I know there is micro for this kind of this but it would be great if you could integrate in the text editor.

Are we ever going to get paragraph numbering in Confluence Cloud? There's a whole slew of businesses out there who write legal type docs who can't use Confluence Cloud.

Yes - it is in the wiki toolbar to the left of the tick and the indent second to the right of the tick

I must correct my self - by multi level paragraph numbering i meant multiple paragraph headings.

If it is multiple page document which content is divided in multiple paragraph headings, than its is not convenient to use 'i' or 'a.' because it can be in multiple places in the document.

On contrary by using automated paragraph headings like 1.2.1. or is much more easily to find and there is no interpretation on which higher lever the section it belongs.

Without these paragraph heading numbering system, it is super hard to write user friendly system technical specification.
