    Underlining Paragraph Numbering (2003)

    Hi there!

    Here's a stumper. In previous versions of Word you could underline the paragraph number and allow the text of the paragraph to not show underlining by selecting the paragraph mark (with Show/Hide on) and clicking Underline.

    1. This text should not be underlined, however the number should be.

    This is a common requirement for legal documents. If anyone knows how to achieve this in Word 2003 I'd appreciate the help.

    Thanks!

    What kind of numbering are you using, and if it is automatic numbering, can you underline the numbers in the style definition? Or does it need to be done on an ad hoc basis?

    Instead of selecting the paragraph mark, use the Shift key and the left arrow key to select the first number in the list and then you can use Control-U or any other method to format the numbers.

    See attached example.

    That won't work on individual paragraphs, though?

    And it's still weird that the old method of font-formatting the paragraph mark fails for underlines, but not for other kinds of formatting?

    (I have given up on automatic numbering, and mostly use list styles with typed, hard numbers BTW)
