This bug is essentially a continuation of Bug#76937.

The "Options" tab also has similar (but lesser) issues:

(a) The level list and the controls look like two columns of the same table.
    So the following controls appear to be related on one-to-one basis: 
    1 -> Number, 3/4 -> character style, 5/6 -> show sublevels, etc.

(b) The "Start at" control is tightly related to the "Number" control, yet
placed at the end.

(c) The "Start at" control conflicts with "Consecutive numbering", yet both
controls are allowed to be active at the same time.


1. Separate the "Level" list and "Controls" sections by drawing rectangular
outline around both, and moving them apart.

2. Move the "Start at" control just below the "Number" control.

3. Allow either "Start at" control or the "Consecutive numbering" to be active
at one time (both cannot be active together)
