I need to have several numbered series on a page but google wants to keep all of my items in numerical order rather than letting me have a new numbered list

Hi, Deb,
It's not clear what you're trying to do. Could you please provide more information -- perhaps a screen shot or an example of what you're seeing now and what you want to have happen?

Hi Jo... Google Docs automatically defaults the creation of a new numbered list in numerical sequence from the past list, though it is separate. Deb is asking how to set the new list to start from 1.

Double click the number that you want to be 1 and click “Restart Numbering.” You could also double click the number you want to be 1 and click “1” inside of the box.

Double click the number or letter where you wish to restart. Then, from the Format drop-down menu choose Bullets and Numbering, then Lists, and you will see the option to restart numbering. It's a pain, but it's available.
