    Automatic Numbering (Word 2000)

    Hello all.
    I have just set up a numbering style on the attached document, but Automatic numbering now doesn't kick in when you press enter after a paragraph.
    I have the Format-as-you-type boxes ticked.
    Can anyone tell me what the problem is.
    Thanks
    Emily

    Re: Automatic Numbering (Word 2000)

    You have used outline numbering based on the Heading styles. By default, the Heading styles have Normal set as style for the following paragraph, so if you press enter while at the end of one of the numbered paragraphs, the new paragraph will be set to Normal style and hence not numbered.

    If you switch to outline view, it is very easy to promote and demote paragraphs; the outline numbering will be adjusted automatically.

    If you click at the end of the paragraphs numbered ([img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img], the new paragraph will automatically be numbered , since this is standard numbering, not outline numbering.
