Problem description: 

If you have outline numbering for headings enabled and you change the heading level (e.g. 3 -> 4) and then hit undo, the line reverts to Heading 1 style instead of the previous style.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a new document
2. Tools > Outline Numbering
3. Set levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 to 'Number' style (so Heading 4 would be
4. Set the current line to 'Heading 3' style
5. Change the current line to 'Heading 4' style
6. Hit undo (Ctrl+Z)

Current behavior:

The heading becomes '1' (goes to Heading 1 style)

Expected behavior:

The heading becomes '1.1.1' (goes back to Heading 3 style)
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release
