How to Create list style that begins from 1 each time its used

I'm having a strange issue with Word (2007). If I create a style which formats a list, when I apply that style at various parts in the document the list automatically continues the numbering from the previous list.

While I can go manually set the numbering to start at 1 each time - this is a bit of a pain.

How can I create a style which automatically begins numbering from 1 each time ?

Hello,

you could try a variation of the approach outlined here:

Quoting from Cindy Meister's post:

Create a single outline numbering style [...]. Set the first level to have no numbering; the numbering starts at the second level. Make sure the second level is set to restart numbering after the first level. Assign the numbering levels to paragraph styles. Use the paragraph style linked to the first level to format the paragraph immediately preceding the first paragraph that should have a number. Apply the style for the second level to the first numbered paragraph.

What you're seeing is basically "by design", even though it's extremely annoying. There's no way to "toggle" the behavior - it can only be controlled fully by using numbering and paragraph styles.
