    Don't merge lists in Word – is it possible to set as default?


    Hello, It took me some time to find the name of that function in English. I often have a multi-level list like the following. They are usually bullet lists, not numbered lists, but the list-styles are the real ones : 1. This is style List1 1.1. This is style List 2 1.2. This is also style List 2 1.3. This is also style List 2 2. This is style List 1 3. This is style List 1 I often want to move item 1.2 between items 2 and 3. By default, Word reformats the paragraph as a "List 1" item and each time, I have to manually click on the icon "Do not merge lists" ("Ne pas fusionner la liste" in French). Unfortunately, I have not found a way to do it automatically, which means that cut and paste is almost always a 2-step process... and when I forget to do it on the spot, It requires even more work to reformat. My question. Is there a way to have "Do not merge lists" as the default? Because that's what I want, like 99.99% of the time. Thank you. BTW, versions are current: Windows 10, v.19043.1165 (in French) Office 2016 ] v. 2107, build 1428.20250 (in French)

    :)

    Don't merge lists in Word – is it possible to set as default?

    Hello,

    It took me some time to find the name of that function in English.

    I often have a multi-level list like the following. They are usually bullet lists, not numbered lists, but the list-styles are the real ones :
    1. This is style List1
    1.1. This is style List 2
    1.2. This is also style List 2
    1.3. This is also style List 2
    2. This is style List 1
    3. This is style List 1

    I often want to move item 1.2 between items 2 and 3. By default, Word reformats the paragraph as a "List 1" item and each time, I have to manually click on the icon "Do not merge lists" ("Ne pas fusionner la liste" in French). Unfortunately, I have not found a way to do it automatically, which means that cut and paste is almost always a 2-step process... and when I forget to do it on the spot, It requires even more work to reformat.

    My question. Is there a way to have "Do not merge lists" as the default? Because that's what I want, like 99.99% of the time.

    Thank you.

    BTW, versions are current:
    – Windows 10, v.19043.1165 (in French)
    – Office 2016 ] v. 2107, build 1428.20250 (in French)

  3. Mail merge with Windows Mail

    Can you do a mail merge to email using Windows Mail? I've set my default email app to Mail, but it doesn't send the emails. I've done mail merges to Outlook in the past so have no trouble going through the right steps in Word, using an Excel list for the
    email addresses.
