I'm a new OmniOutliner user with a seemingly simple problem that I can not figure out, nor can I find any answers in the manual or in this forum.

I would like to develop an outline with rows automatically numbered hierarchically like this:

1 item 1
-1.1 child 1
-1.2 child 2
--1.2.1 grandchild 1
--1.2.2 grandchild 2
-1.3 child 3
--1.3.1 grandchild 1

etc.

I have not been able to do this. I have selected the "1, 1.1, 1.1.1, " item from the View/Row Numbering menu for the entire document, but all I can get is an outline that looks like this:

1 item 1
-1 child 1
-2 child 2
--1 grandchild 1
--2 grandchild 2
-3 child 3
--1 grandchild 1

That is, only the "leaf" number of the tree is shown, not the entire numbering hierarchy.

Am I missing something obvious?
Thanks for any help.
