The problem with this option is that it does not seem to "stick." Even when
I select the "restart numbering" option and produce a properly numbered
list, the next time I open the file I often find that numbering has become
sequential throughout the whole document.

Today a new problem cropped up: all my numbered lists items suddenly
reverted to 1. Sheesh.

I had a lot of trouble with lists numbering from a previous list until I
found the following (cut from a message from Sella Rush). Not seeting
this caused me many hours of frustrating rework.

(In the Bullets and Numbering dialog box (access from the
Format menu), there are 2 option buttons: "Restart Numbering" and
"Continue from a previous list". I believe the default is "continue
from a previous list". This means that no matter where you are, if you
want to number a paragraph it will automatically continue any previous
numbering)
