Hi, Jamal

Sorry to hear about the spacing issues.

I'm not sure if this will solve the problem, but you can try setting the "Text indent at" position to "0" in the "Define New Multilevel List" dialog box.

If that still doesn't work, double-check that the left and right indentation you have set for "Chapter One" and "Introduction" are both set to zero on the ruler. Sometimes, there's a first line indentation hanging there somewhere.

Please let me know if this doesn't work, so we can try something else.

Thanks!

Anytime, Jamal. Sorry that the previous options didn't work. Looks like there's an extra tab in there after the number. You probably tried this already, but what happens when you press the "Delete" key after "One" for "Chapter One?" Anything?

You can also try going to the Styles task pane, right-clicking on "Heading 1" and selecting "Modify." In the Modify Style dialog box, click "Format" and "Tabs" to bring up the Tabs dialog box for that style. Clear any tab stops and click "OK."

As a last resort, try deleting the outline styles and then rebuilding them. Sorry, I know this option is a lot of work. So, I hope you don't have to do that, unless of course, you only have a few.

thank you allysonstewart,

the control for this space is from:

1. define new multilevel list, then set the "follow number with" = nothing
2. clearing the tabs of the style heading 1 (as you have mentioned)

the attached images show these features

regards

Jamal
