Accidentally clicked that little numbering menu next to the paragraph type menu and now all my headings have numbers on them:

1. Basics
  1.1 Overview

and so forth. How can I make those go away again? All the googling I've done turned up results like how to remove the numbering plugin or how to disable formatting entirely. I just want to remove the numbers from this one page.

Click it again. That'll turn it off. The "little numbering menu" evidently works like a toggle switch.

  • Awww, fer crying out loud. I kept trying to fix it in the drop-down. Thanks. Commented Oct 6, 2022 at 17:54

Same thing happened to me, it's an amazingly bad interface, even word gives you the option of selecting 'no numbering'. Anyway, I made it go away by selecting 'custom' (as opposed to the default which was decimal). I did not even have to add anything into the text boxes under custom. I had no idea if this would work or not but it did but I am not going to try this again. I only did this once.
