Cool Revising a number format in Outline Numbering in Word 2016

Hello,
I use Word 2016. I have created an outline numbering (multilevel numbering) and need to make an edit to one of the heading styles. I read in a previous posting that I should click on the Multilevel List button, then right click on the icon under Lists in Current Document. There I should be able to select Modify. But I don't get the option to Modify. (see attached).



How can I change the number formatting of one of the levels without messing up the formatting of all the other ones (or without breaking the sequential numbering)?

The first question is whether you originally followed the steps at How to create numbered headings or outline numbering in Ribbon Versions of Word by Shauna Kelly when you set up the numbering.

Your multilevel list will only be part of a list style if you actually created it as part of a list style. See http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/numb...g20072010.html.

List styles are found in the "List Styles" category of the Home | Multilevel List drop down. You can also find them in the Manage Styles dialog box, from where they can be modified the way you would modify any other styles.

Thank you both for pointing me to Shauna Kelly's article. That was a big help.
