Hi there,

I'm currently working on a file containing a whole lot of phrases I translated into Spanish as part of an exercice. I wanted to list the phrases in such a way that they correspond to the order of the original untranslated sentences. Since we didn't translate every sentence there are some 'gaps'. For instance, I have the translations for sentences 1-15 and then the following list contains the translations of sentences 22-35.

I'm used to working with styles in MS Word 2003 and it's become a habit to make use of styles as much as possible. However, I'm rather new to working with styles in OpenOffice and now I can't figure out how to renumber lists starting with, for instance, number 22, without the previous list formatted using the same style restarting with number 22. I'm using OpenOffice 2.2 and the style 'numbering 2' to number my lists.

To illustrate and hopefully clarify what I want my document to be like:

Code:

<style="numbering 2">
1 Translation.
2 Translation.
(...)
15 Translation.

22 Translation.
23 Translation.
(...)
35 Translation.

43 Translation
(and so on)
</style>


Any advice would be much appreciated!!

Thanks,
gibbor

Right-click the paragraph and select Paragraph. On the dialog, click the Numbering tab. There you should find an option to restart numbering and specify the starting number.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I've already tried what you suggested but without success. After the new starting number is specified, the previous list is affected by the change too and the renumbering starts with the very first list that's styled with "numbering 2"...

Ah, I'm sorry. I tried something similar using the Bullets & Numbering toolbar options but I didn't use the Paragraph options... So I did precisely what you suggested this time and it worked!

As usual with computers, it's the small things that are easily overlooked that can make a big difference! Smile

Thanks,
