Word 2010 Styles / Paragraph Issues

Have a hard time here with indenting and the automatic effect it has on changing styles in Word.

I have a 1pg doc with
title
1
   A
   B
   C
II
   A .... and so on

The problem I am having is when I originally copy/pasted this from Outlook Email. It took the Title and put everything else on PG 2 - leaving the majority of PG1 blank.

I then tried to change the Paragraph settings for the layout I wanted. I would delete back up to the line below the Title, select all and try to apply the correct paragraph and it keeps pushing all the data below the Title to the second page. And I see the Style changes on its own. Screwing everything up.

Any insight on this? I fixed it by removing all the letters/roman numerals, set the paragraphs with Tab and then select all and applied the indent headings.

I also notice when using the navigation pane that the Title would never show up so I could not promote or demote to help adjust the indent labels.

Thanks in advance - SJMP

Sounds like Word picked up the List style(s) from the Outlook message.  I would suggest that you paste using "Keep Text Only" from an email to Word to prevent things like this from happening again

But after it does happen how can I regain control over the text in the doc.

Select the offending text and hit CTRL+SHIFT+N to apply the Normal Style to the text.  Then you can format it as you please.
