Subject:Re: Numbered list misbehaviour in Word97... From:Carl Leonard <CLeonard -at- TFMG -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 5 Nov 1998 20:49:33 -0800
Dan Schmitz asked:
Why is it that, when attempting to restart the numbering in numbered
Word97 also changes some of the formatting?
The short answer is that Dan has encountered Annoying Word97 Bug
#716384635829. You could call Microsoft Support, but that would be even more
annoying. The work-around is to be patient and persistent. When you stop
fiddling with the formatting, Word will stop screwing up. With any luck,
you'll have the last word (pardon the pun).
