WinWord: Renumber with Terminating Space Defaults to Period PSS ID Number: Q41748 Article last modified on 07-21-1994

1.00 1.10 1.10a 2.00



When renumbering paragraphs using a custom-number format terminated with a space, Microsoft Word for Windows versions 1.0, 1.1, and 1.1a still place a period after each number.

For example, if a selection is renumbered using the number format “1,” the result is as follows:

  1. Text text text.
  2. Text text text.
  3. Text text text.

Word includes the period after the paragraph number by default, even if you specify a space, rather than a period in the number format. Placing a space after the number in the number format changes the renumbering separator (the character between the number and the text) from a tab to a space, but does not affect the punctuation after the paragraph number.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word for Windows versions 1.0, 1.1, and 1.1a. This problem was corrected in Word for Windows version 2.0.
