Thread: Numbering Text
2000-12-30, 15:42 #1seeme2sueGuest
When I'm working on numbering text and hit enter, Word2000 automatically numbers the next line of text, whether I want to or not. Is there anyway to hit enter witout triggering the next number?

Re: Numbering Text
Tools/AutoCorrect.../AutoFormat As You Type tab/ uncheck "Apply as you type" "Automatic numbered lists". While you're there, you might want to uncheck other options as well. You should definitely uncheck the very bottom option "screw up, er, I mean, Define styles based on your formatting". You might also go to the AutoFormat tab & uncheck items you don't want automatically formatted. That will only affect you if you auto format the whole document, though. It doesn't affect ordinary typing.
Hope this helps.
