Paragraph Numbering Rules: What You Should Know

From the menu that appears, choose “Number this paragraph…” This will change all the single-level and multi-level numbered paragraphs to the current paragraph number (note: multi-level numbering is not available on newer operating systems). The paragraph numbering will be adjusted accordingly for paragraphs that follow the current paragraph number. Be aware that the numbering will be adjusted for multi-level numbered paragraphs that occur after the current paragraph. The “paragraph” command is not available in Microsoft Word 2022 or later, due to a change in formatting features. You can check to see if you need MS Word 2022 by checking the “Print” menu. Use a formatting style that has horizontal spacing. Include a page break before paragraphs numbering. Using a formatting style that does not have horizontal spacing makes it easier for readers to understand and remember the numbering. Use this format: 1, 2, 3 or 3, 10, 21 or 3, 10, 21 or 10, 21. This rule is used to differentiate numbering according to section or body paragraph breaks. Each paragraph breaks before the next begins numbering. So a paragraph breaks with the “paragraph” command at 2 and the numbering begins at 3. For the multi-paragraph numbering, each paragraph breaks before the next begins numbering. This rule makes it easier to refer to paragraphs (paragraphs must be printed in italics since they are numbers) when doing single-level numbering. The bullet list number is based on the number you are reading. So if the first paragraph is 1, the second paragraph is 2 and the numbering begins at 3, no breaks are necessary between 2 and 3. For example, if you want to use paragraph numbering, start the heading with a single number and then follow up with “Heading 1,” “Heading 2,” etc.
