Level Displays the ordinal position of the level for which the name specified in Name is used. To add a new naming template for a level, select Name on the row that contains an asterisk (*) in Level.
Name Contains the naming template used for the level indicated in Level. To add a placeholder for the level ordinal position in the naming template, add a single asterisk (*). To add an asterisk as part of the name created by the naming template, add two asterisks (**).
