Microsoft Word - paragraph formatting

I am being driven round the bend by Microsoft Word. Whenever I open word and start typing a document, I invariably number my paragraphs. As soon as I finish para 1 and hit return Word indents para 1 and I have to go to the format command to undo it. I guess this is the default template kicking in but try as I might I cannot fix this problem. Can anyone help me?

Sorry I can't help on this, but I've been using Word since it was slate and chalk and have never even seen paragraphing like that, let alone had it as a default template!

Did it begin like this or have you formatted it in a document at sometime and it has stayed?

(1) Go to Tools\Autocorrect


(2) Click on Autoformat as you Type


(3) Untick "Automatic Numbered Lists"


That should solve your problem.

Good thinking fitshase. Can't you tell it's getting late? Numbered and bulletted lists never crossed my mind :)

Thanks fitshase, it has fixed the problem I am very grateful for your help. A couple of hours to fix a problem that has been driving me nuts for months. Lesson learnt - thanks a lot
