If you want to create a list that includes multiple levels, you might find that using a
multilevel list instead of a numbered list better its your content needs. See the section,
“Creating and Using Multilevel Lists,”on page 373 for specific directions.
When you use Numbering, you are using a single style called List Paragraph. If you are
using complex numbering or using multiple unique lists in a document, then create a
new list style instead. The Define New List Style command is found on the Home tab in
the Paragraph group, at the bottom of the Multilevel List gallery.
This method will create a style for each new list and provide more control over editing
the list and applying the correct list to the related paragraphs. For more information on
creating list styles, see the section titled “Creating a New List Style,” on page 375.
Some of your numbered list items might be separated by elements such as charts,
explanatory paragraphs, or sidebars. When you click the Numbering button, if Word doesn’t
automatically continue with the next numbered step in your process, you can continue numbers
in an existing numbered list in several ways:
• If the AutoCorrect Options button appears in the document, click it and click
• Display the Numbering gallery and then click Set Numbering Value. In the Set
Numbering Value dialog box, shown in Figure 11-20, select Continue From Previous List.
(This option is also available when you right-click a list item.)
