I’ve recently moved from Microsoft Office. I’m on Windows 10 Home, May (2004) update and Writer 6.3. I’ve got hundreds of existing files in DOC and DOCX which are basically lists. They all display fine but there’s one thing I don’t understand. If text is highlighted in any list item, once the document is closed and re-opened all the list numbers in the entire document have acquired the highlighting, and it isn’t removed by applying no-fill. The problem persists even when I save the DOC file as ODF. But, if I create a new list document in ODF and convert it to DOC(X), things are fine. This is a problem because I was in the habit of using highlighting to flag areas of text for later editing.
How can I stop this happening.
