Restarting numbering for a new list in Microsoft Word 2019

Scenario: You have typed a list in a document and formatted it as amultilevel or numbered list, or the document you have received from acolleague already has a numbered list set up. You would like to insert anew list directly underneath the list or at any point in the document.Word will automatically continue the numbering sequence on the new list,but you want to restart the numbering from your insertion point.

Let’s see how we can do this, as follows:

  1. Start a new list by choosing the numbered or multilevel listicon.
  2. Let’s say you notice that a 3)appears instead of a 1) to start thenew list.
  3. Right-click next to the 3) andchoose Restart at 1 from the shortcutmenu provided. Alternatively, you can choose Set Numbering Value… and choose a numberto set your list to start at, as illustrated in the followingscreenshot:
