[Solved] Strange colored field where number is in heading

My problem is I somehow got a colored field behind the numbers in my headings. I cannot find where or how to get rid of it.
Think I have tried all tools.
The headings are normal, and they are numbered. See picture attached.


If you know, I would be happy to know, too!

There is a marking which will show up on all entries in the same outline level. This will appear when insertion point is moved to the number area. By default it is grey, but that can be altered.

Does the yellow background appear behind the number of all headings, all headings of the same level, randomly or in one single entry?
Does it disappear when you start typing?
Does it appear on printout/preview/PDF-export?

Look at /Tools /Outline numbering and see if a Character Style is applied to the numbering.

Yes, it does only show up on same outline level.
Yes, it shows up only behind the number, and at every instance of this outline level in the document.
Yes, it does show up on printouts.

Yes, that was it!

Thanks to both of you!
