In our templates, the Numbered (and Bulleted) List styles have been painstakingly customized to match our house style design, with indentation differing from the Word default. However, whenever a user clicks either the Numbered List or Bulleted List buttons on the Formatting toolbar, the customized indentation is destroyed and reverts to the Word Default.
This happens when I modify the built-in List styles and also when I create my own List styles, basing them on Normal.
It's like the buttons don't only apply bullets/numbers, but also modify any bulleted/numbered list style in the entire document.
Why does this happen? And how can I make it not happen?
However, I expect that the users will have the button available, so they will have a chance to mess up the formatting of our numbered list Styles.
The link you provide seems helpful in that it explains how to link our styles to an outline numbering style. I will look into this as soon as I am back at my workplace. Thanks so far!
