If you have a Word document with lists, either numbered or bulleted, there may be a reason to change one or more of them back to normal text while you are editing.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Select the list item(s) you no longer want in your list.
- Be certain the Home tab of your ribbon is displayed.
- If your list is numbered, click the Numbering tool in the Paragraph group.
- If your list is bulleted, click on the Bullets tool in the Paragraph group.
Should you remove the numbering or bullets from only one area of your list the remainder will retain the list formatting, If necessary, Word will adjust the numbering on any remaining items in your list.
There is another way to remove list formatting. Simply select the paragraphs you want to remove the formatting from, and click on CTRL + Q. It will return your paragraph formatting to whatever is defined by the underlying style applied to your paragraphs.
