Stop Word’s Automatic Numbering When You Start a New List


I’ve had to stop using the automatic numbering system in Word because it drove me crazy. But I really need it. Here’s the thing: Whenever I want to add a second, separate numbered list under the first list, which ends, say, with six items, Word second-guesses me and no matter what I do, it just makes the next item 7. How do I stop that?

It’s just a simple right-click trick. When you get to the end of the first list, right-click just at that spot and, when the screen below appears, select Restart Numbering.
