If the numbers are part of the heading format in word, there is no option to import it with the numbers, as they will be generated, depending on position and the number of previous headings.
I suggest you have a look on the following plugin: Numbered Headings
Here you can define how your headings on your page should be numbered.
Thanks! I have tried the macro, it looks good. but we are using the "Split per heading" option , and therefore H1 (originally in WORD) becomes the page name and H2 are set as "Heading 1" . as a results (after using the macro) the numbers in the page "losses" a level (for example : 1.1 in "WORD" becomes 1.)
Any ideas ?
not exactly, but if you edit your macro, you get to the options and here you can define "number-format=custom". Within the given fields for h1 to h6 below you can define quite precise how they should be numbered. Please see the documentation for more information: http://addons.avisi.com/numbered-headings/documentation/ as there are tons of options how to format your numbers.
My first guess will be something like
Hope you find a solution that fits your needs
Speaking as a tech writer, numbered headings are so 80s! I don't think they make sense in a Wiki and in the age of hyperlinking and full-text search. They were a method of easy reference for print documents before desktop publishing was commonplace.
And trying to reproduce them in Confluence requires some workarounds, and you will have to changed them if you move a page, or what if you include a page in another page tree? Then the heading numbers won't make sense. Plus you will have to manually update the numbers in any hyperlinks to those headings – a real pain.
My suggestion is to drop numbered headings. I have told my customers that for more than 15 years. No one misses them a month later.
