TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
As much as I shudder to admit it, we seem to have a large project coming
into the house that will require hundreds of pages of graphics in Word,
along with gobs of step instructions.
Up to now I've just done workarounds for Word's autonumbering problems, but
now I'd like to be able to grab the bull by the...horns...and shut off the
pesky thing and number manually. (God how I hate to go to that, but it's
better than wrestling with autonumbering!).
Does anyone know how to deactivate this helpful little feature?
