I am trying to make use of heading-like paragraph styles in order to make a document of numbered paragraphs with nested levels. Something like (view this in monospaced font if it does not show like that; however in my document I do not particularly want to use a monosopaced font):

1. Here is some first text and
   note how the text is aligned
   vertically in a straight line
   on the left.
   1.1 Here is a subitem of that
       first item and again the
       text is aligned in a
       straight line.
       1.1.1 And one more level
             down. You get the
       1.1.2 Et cetera et cetera
             et cetera.

The reason I want to use paragraph styles rather than a numbered list is that I want the structure to show up in the Navigator, which is very handy to get an overview with its collapsible levels, and also for a TOC.

After much wrangling with style definitions (Indents & Spacing) and Outline Numbering, I can't quite get it the way shown above. Somehow I'm not getting the straight left alignment emphasized above. Also, ideally, I don't want to use fixed tab positions and the like: I want the first "1" of "1.1" to align (automatically?) with the left border of the text at "1.", and so on.

(Tables might make this kind of alignment easier, but then I'd lose the nice overview in Navigator again.)

Is this possible, and can someone put me on the right track?

Thank you!
