Fortunately, you are not SOL! I avoid Word's autonumbering "feature"
altogether because it so unreliable. I've written up a workaround using SEQ
fields instead. You'll find it on my Web site at Caveat: the tip is written with the RoboHELP
user in mind; however, it works great in plain ol' Word, too.
