Formatting paragraphs in Word 2007 Multilevel lists


L

Ludite

I'm using Word 2007, SP2.

Without the list applied, the paragraph style is what I selected with a 6pt
space before and after each paragraph.

When I apply a multilevel list, the style is not what I wanted, and the
inter-paragraph spacing disappears.

I went into define a new list style and correcetd the style to give a
hanging indent, but under format, "paragraph" is muted and not available to
edit.

How do I restore the inter-paragraph spacing?

Thank you for any suggestions you can offer.

Modify the List Paragraph style, clearing the check box for "Don't add space
between paragraphs of the same style" in the Paragraph dialog.

Thank you Suzanne!

I'd not noticed that check box,
and I only found it on the 2nd look after reading your reply.

VERY respectfully,

You're not much of a Luddite if you managed to find and modify the style
with so little instruction!

He's not a Luddite (a follower of Ludd who hates modern machinery),
but a Ludite, a _Homo ludens_, who enjoys playing!

I figured he was a Luddite who didn't know how to spell it. <g>

It's refreshing to have someone actually recognize the reference.

As an engineer, I'm certified as functionally illiterate. But, in this
case, it was not an error: years ago, a list that I'd joined already had my
name and easy monikers taken, so I chose one that wouldn't have been in use,
"Luddite." When it was already taken, I practiced my black language skills
and then dropped a "d." (Adding an "r" was acceptable in "Derringer" so. . .
)

Very respectfully,
Larry
