Hi Justin,Thank you for reaching out! I checked on the conversations and defect that you linked and found that SOS-DEF-498 was noted as being resolved.Then I checked our User Guide on imports/headings and found this note, "For Headings to determine hierarchy, you must use the default Word styles like Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3. You can use up to seven levels of hierarchy in Word."More on that here: Prepare Word Doc for Import: set hierarchy with headings and styles. It would appear that should be able to use up to at least seven levels so I am not certain why yours is cutting off at five.
Could you try again with seven levels and tell me if it still cuts off at five?
Good afternoon Decoteau,
Looks like this particular instance is hanging up on level "heading 6" MS Word heading style. Attached is the Word document we were using as an experiment to see how deep we could import.
The results are looking like this, with the deepest level just getting everything deeper than it shoved in:
Regardless of if it's level 6 or 7, we often times have specifications that can go as far as "heading 12" deep.
If there were a way to tweak that setting during the Import Wizard or on a per component/set basis, that could be a nice feature.
We will use the work around of creating "sub-documents" to import for levels deeper than "heading 7", as there does not appear to be a maximum number of levels one could create manually.
Seems like the "heading 7" limit is related to importing functionality, and not a limit on the number of levels deep (e.g. we've been able to import an additional 7 layers from the 7th layer, creating 14 nested layers)
Are there any other suggested work-arounds?
Thanks so much,

Using the suggested formatting, we too are able to import 6 levels (but not 7).
Understood on the "as design" scalability issue. Thank you for requesting to add the clarification to the User Manual.
You can mark this issue as closed on your end of things. We will continue to use our work around, if we have imports needing more than 6 levels.
Thanks again for the help!
