Word 2016/Win10

Hi,

I have a numbered list from 1 to 10. After creating it, i realized it needs to be two lists e.g.
1 to 2
and
1 to 8.

How can I restart the list at #3 so that the items currently numbered 3 to 10 are now numbered 1 to 8? I need to preserve all sublevels of the list as well.

Thanks,
Steve

OK, I tried it; however, Restart at 1 is grayed out.
 
 Restart at 1 grayed out
Could it be b/c my list contains multiple levels?

Thanks!

OK, I just tried again. And, it SEEMS that if I selected ONLY the first line, it worked. Need to confirm later...rushing out to client meeting.

Does the above make sense? :)

Thanks.

als315,
Thank you for your offer. Here's a test document that demonstrates the problem. I created it in Word 2016 (Win10). Please try with per item 3.

I'm thinking that the solution may simply to highlight the single item where you want to restart the numbering. Perhaps, that was Microsoft's intent. Intuitively, it would make sense, since, when you think about it, a "restart point" is really only one item, not a series of items....

Thanks.

Excellent.

In that case, can I please ask a favor?

Re-post your original solution. Indicate in your post that you select only that one line. That way, I can give you full credit for your answer without referring to multiple posts. :)

Thanks!

How about if you re-post the first comment with the correction I suggested? In that case, I'd accept only that new comment. I think that would be clearest to anyone reading your solution. Thank you.
