Default Auto-Enumeration "broken"

Hey everyone,




I have the following problem when working with Word. This came up recently and I don't know why. So far everything always worked just fine.


I'm writing something like 1. and the auto-enumeration feature sets in and puts my number into like the sixth level of the numbering, so somewhere in the middle of the page. It is the level where the numbers would appear again when you go through the levels starting at the numbers (1,2,3) going through a,b,c, and i,ii,iii etc. (hopefully this is somewhat understandable)


How can I make Word understand, that I want to start a new enumeration every time?



I totally understand, if you need additional information in order to understand what I mean. Please ask for them. I'm having issues putting the problem into words.



Btw.: I am using Windows 10 and Word 2019.


Thank you in advance!

The numbering you get through AutoFormat as you type is prone to becoming a real mess. Many experienced Word users turn this option off.

Thanks a lot for the link. I'll need some more time to actually set this up, but it sounds quite good. Do you know anything about how that works with Office updates? So I'm using Office 365, so whenever there's a new version I have it and it would be very annoying if I'd have to set it up anew every time.



Thank you!

Set it up in a template and save the template.
In the first page, I describe how you can use a template to hold styles and yet not be the normal template nor the template used to start documents. The second one tells about the various kinds of template, where they are stored, and how to use them.
