Microsoft Word 2003 Lists – Restart List Numbering

When modifying a complex Word 2003 document containing multiple lists, Word may get confused when handling one list directly after another, continuing the numbering from the previous list. For example, one list may contain items numbered 1-4, yet a second seemingly-independent list may start numbering at 5 instead of restarting at 1. If this happens, merely right-click inside the second list and choose “Restart Numbering” from the pop-up menu that appears.
