I have a rather long list of about 85 items that has until now been no problem. For some reason items 1 to 9 restarted at 1 giving a second list. I have not been able to fix this. I know how to restart a list from 1 but how do I do the reverse?
If anybody can help please do.

Thank you Ajlittoz and I apologise for my lack of detail in my question. I hope the following helps.

I have used ‘restart numbering’ several times before but have never had to remove it. You seem to be saying that the restart numbering could only have happened if I had manually done something to bring it about. If that is true it was not intended and I was not aware of it.
You asked me to describe how I constructed the list. The list was created one item at a time when there was something to add to it. The numbers of the items came up automatically when Enter was hit. The next level was created by demotion as usual. If text was required without going to levels. I used Backspace to remove the item number and repeated this process for each line of text required.Most entries consist of a heading line and lines of text.
In an attempt to remedy the situation I went to the Format Menu and selected Lists and from there selected ‘Continue Previous Numbering’. Three variations of this that I tried did not work. This involved different positions of the cursor and highlighting the text, the text and heading or not. Finally the cursor was tried just after the number one of the list item where the ‘Restart Numbering’ took effect. All that happened here was that any lines of text under its heading line were numbered. The situation of having a second list starting with 1,2,3… did not change.
What do you mean by “remove the ‘Restart Numbering’ flag?”
I hope this fills the gaps.
