Number lists can cause special problems when dividing or copying them because the numbering may get out of sequence, or you may want to start numbering from a number other than one.
To change the starting number of a numbered list, follow these steps:
1. Right-click the item that you want to renumber.
If you want to renumber your entire list, right-click the first item at the top of the numbered list.
A pop-up menu appears, as shown in Figure 5-9.
Right-clicking a numbered list item to see options for renumbering your list.
2. Choose one of the following:
Restart at 1: Changes the numbering of the current list item to 1, the list item directly below to 2, and so on. (This option does not appear if you right-click the first item in a number list.)
Continue Numbering: Changes the number of the current list item to one greater than the last numbered list item earlier in the document.
Set Numbering Value: Displays the Set Numbering Value dialog box, as shown in Figure 5-10, so you can change the current list item to a specific number such as 34 or 89.
Choose a number for your list.
