I have steps (style: step) that are numbered 1)<tab>, 2)<tab> etc.

Word keeps wanting to turn the step style into normal+numbering, which I don't want. When I return the style to step, the numbers (of course) disappear, but when I put them back, the style changes again.

Is there any way to turn off Word's automatic style over-ride and automatic numbering?  This is for a class project, and we're downgraded for style mutations like that.
