what's the meaning and use of "level" in word binary document ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am studying word binary documentation. The word of "level" appeared many times. It seems that a list or paragraph has one or more "levels". Could anyone tell me that what is the meaning and use of "level" in this context. Or,  does "level" help to construct the structure of a word file ?

    thanks a lot :)

  • Hi wildnature,

    Are you referring to this?

    list level: A condition of a paragraph that specifies which numbering system and indentation to
    use, relative to other paragraphs in a bulleted or numbered list.

    Otherwise can you specify a section that contains ambiguous wording?

  • wildnature,

    I think you're beginning to understand. 

    For example, in 2.4.6.3 "Determining List Formatting of a Paragraph", we see that LVL as you noted is used to determine the list level to which a particular paragraph belongs.  LVL is one of the properties in the paragraph along with LFO which is used to determine if the paragraph is even a member of a list.  LVL only applies if LFO exists and is valid.

    Does that make sense?

  • Hi Baron,

    Are you looking for explanation of a specific part of MS-DOC wrt paragraph level properties or just a general explanation?  I think the specification has some good explanations and I can expand but it would be good to know where to start.

  • Can I comprehend "level" as this ? -->

    There are many numbering systems and indentations help to construct or display a paragraph,  and "level" specify the particular systems and indentations related to a paragraph.

    And, "level" is shown by "LVL" in Word Binary Document.

    Is that true ?

    thanks :-)
