How do I permanently turn numbering / bulleting ON or OFF?

I almost never use numbering / bulleting - and every time I copy paste phone numbers, and equations, sections of spread sheets, etc., the NUMBERING in write, automatically takes over... and I have to keep switching it off.. how do I permanently switch it on or off?

If the function is not in the program - can we get one fitted.

Automated functions ARE great, provided that you want them to automate.

I want to be able to turn it OFF, until such time that I want to turn it ON, - the auto-start function is annoying....

Ctl+v = Insert a phone number... "Ohhh lets delete the first character and start a numbered list...."


Ooooo down the page insert another phone number....

"Ohhh lets delete the first character and start another numbered list...."

And so on and so forth....

This is why I want to be able to switch it ON or ENABLE or switch it off or DISABLE - as a permanent selection.

This is why this option is NEEDED.

Hi @Wroger,

As you probably already know, the bullet formatting is mentioned in the Online Help here:

Unfortunately, I don't see any suggestion there on how to turn off the creation of Bullets/Numbering permanently.

Here's a suggestion on how to disable the feature from Cor Nouws:

Ctrl-Z immediately after the unwanted change
Tools -> Autocorrect options -> tab Options -> Apply numbering/symbol

Or more drastically, just turn off all of the Auto-correct options...

@Wroger -- Is there something specific that you can't disable via the Auto-correct options?
