5 Fix Numbering / Autocorrect Issues So you ve started a list with items 1, 2, and 3, but a page break, image, or something has broken the list and you want the list to continue auto-numbering at number 4 rather than starting over with number 1 again. Or vice versa you want the auto numbering to start over at 1, but it just keeps reverting to 4. To keep the numbering counting up: Click on the Auto Correct Options icon next to the number, and select Continue Numbering. To start over at 1: Click on the Auto Correct Options icon next to the number, and select Restart Numbering. You also have the options to right-click on the list item and choose to Restart, Continue, or choose a completely different number. ITS Word Tips & Tricks (Windows) 5 of 11 Last Modified: 3/7/13

7 Keyboard Shortcuts Numerous shortcuts exist that can be done with a just a stroke or two on your keyboard. Below are some of the most commonly used shortcuts: "Undo" command Typed the wrong thing? Deleted something you want back? Then use this shortcut: Ctrl+Z This is a shortcut that can be used in many applications; in Word it can repeated multiple times to go back almost as far as you want. A note of caution: Word does not always undo one character at a time but may undo a whole block of type. "Redo" command / Repeat command If you change your mind and want to restore something you just undid, use this shortcut: Ctrl+Y If there is nothing to undo, this shortcut becomes "Repeat" and will reproduce your last few words or highlighted text as many times as you want. Copy selected text To copy text you have highlighted, click: Ctrl+C Cut selected text If you want to remove highlighted text and place it somewhere else, use this shortcut: Ctrl+X Paste Also used a lot in various applications, usually in conjunction with the Copy or Cut shortcuts, to Paste copied text, click: Ctrl+V ITS Word Tips & Tricks (Windows) 7 of 11 Last Modified: 3/7/13
