    Numbering in Word


    I'm working on a tutorial for Skype, and need to have a numbered list. Everything was working fine, but then I must have pressed something I shouldn't have, and now my numbering is all crazy!

    It used to look like this:

    But now when I try to number a list, it looks like this:


    Numbering in Word [​IMG]


    As you can see, the numbers are moved over one tab too many, but so far, nothing I do will make the numbering right.

    I've been trying to figure this out for a couple hours and I'm at a loss as to what I did, or how to fix it.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    :)

    How to change sequential numbers in 2016 Word?


    I have a multiple page document that has a 96 numbers sequentially listed. Actually its 192, because the numbers appear twice on the same page. Four duplicate numbers on 12 pages, 192 instances of sequential numbers.

    I need to be able to renumber starting with the next highest number on the list. For example, the highest current number is 96. I need to start the numbering sequence at 97 and then increment from there. I hope this is clear enough.

    For example 100001 thru 100096. I need to renumber the sequence 100097 thru 100192.

    I've fooled around with the Find and Replace tool in Word. If I use the wild card setting, I can find the sequence 1000[0-9][0-9]. But, I can't figure out how to replace the matched find with the next number in the sequence.

    Any suggestions on how to do this?

    Thank you.

    Daryl

    Wrong "remove from list" document on word mobile.

    Hi,

    To further assist you with your concern about re-enabling files that were removed from the Recent Documents List in Word, we suggest to follow this steps:

    • Click the FILE tab in the program.
    • Click Options from the list on the left side of the screen.
    • On the Word Options dialog box, click Advanced in the list of options on the left.
    • On the Advanced screen, scroll down to the Display section. Select the value in the Show this number of Recent Documents edit box. You can choose to change the value to 0 to disable the list.
    • When you open Word, or select the Open option in the program, there are no documents in your Recent Documents list.
    • To re-enable the list, go back into the Word Options dialog box and enter the desired value (from 0 to 50, inclusive) in the Show this number of Recent Documents edit box on the Advanced screen. If any documents were previously displayed in the Recent Documents
      list, they are added to the list again.

    We're just here if you have further questions.

    Regards.
