Numbered Section Headings

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Page Layouts, Columns and Sections

My company is going to Confluence and the customer has specific formatting for all documentation. How do Tech writers insert/use numbered headings (e.g., 1.0 SECTION TITLE, 1.1 Subsection Title, 1.1.1, Sub-subsection title) in Confluence?

Natively, you don't - numbered headings aren't particularly pretty or useful on web-based docs, so Confluence doesn't have them built in. 

They do work better on paper and a lot of people print, so you can probably guess that there's an add-on for them.  There may be others, but the one I've used most is

Some of the export add-ons also allow you to add them (Scroll export is the one I've used, and that's ideal - numbered headings when printing them, none when just viewing)
