    Numbered Lists - Highlight (Word 2K)

    I give up! A fellow worker received a document that has several numbered lists. One of the lists has one of its numbers highlighted in yellow. Have tried everything to remove it to no avail. Any help appreciated. Thanks!!!

    Re: Numbered Lists - Highlight (Word 2K)

    Hello Roberto,

    When you say you have tried everything, how about...

    Is the number hightlighted with the highlghter button? If so, remove the highlighting by selecting the offending text, clicking on the drop-down next to the highlighter button and selecting "none".

    Is the background set to yellow? If so, you can select the text, choose Format, Borders & Shading, go to the Shading tab and remove the shading.

    Or, you might try to highlight the offending text and choose Edit, Clear, Formats and see if that will work.

    Did any of these help you?

    Thanks, Bob!

    Yes, I tried those and some others I can't remember. The highlighting is in the number, not the text. Will keep at it until I find a way or go nuts!

    Thanks again!

    Perhaps you can post a small demo document that demonstrates the problem (remove or replace confidential text)

    Roberto,

    Have you tried removing the number by clicking the Numbering button, then using the Format Painter button to grab the desired format from another item in the same numbered list?

    Hi,

    Select the entire line including the paragraph mark at the end, turn the highlighting to none and this should remove the highlighting from the number.
