I'm befuddled Smile I've tried various solutions, nothing works, couldn't
find identical situation in groups (but tried some proposed solutions).

Desired outcome: to be able to have my own style for numbered lists
that works Smile
Problems: two variants on one problem, described below:


I created a style "FooNumbered".

Style based on : (no style)

Produces a numbered list, left indent at 2.0"

Use it the first time:

1. Line 1
2. Line 2
3. Line 3

Used it the next time:
4. Line A

Right-click, Restart numbering.

PROBLEM #1: Line A restarts at '1', but both lists slide over and start
at a left indent of .89"

---- closed doc without saving, tried again ---

Set up the two lists as before.
Went to the first list, right-click, Restart numbering.
No change. Good.

Went to the second list. right-clic, Restart numbering.
PROBLEM #2: Nothing happens. List doesn't slide over, but the number
doesn't reset either.
