Unless otherwise noted, all instructions and screenshots are from Microsoft Office for Windows.
Recently, I’ve gotten several questions from users who love the paragraph autonumbering technique illustrated at my post “How to automatically number your discovery requests … in 5 keystrokes,” but they need to start the numbering sequence above “1”.

WOW – You read that whole post!
