Office can automatically apply numbering or bullets as you type.
Choose Tools - AutoCorrect - AutoCorrect Options, click the Options tab, and then select “Bulleted and numbered lists”.
Choose Tools - AutoCorrect, and ensure that While Typing is selected.
The automatic numbering option is only applied to paragraphs that are formatted with the "Default", "Text body", or "Text body indent" paragraph style.
Type 1., i., or I. to start a numbered list. Type * or - to start a bulleted list. You can also type a right parenthesis after the number instead of a full stop, for example, 1) or i).
Enter a space, type your text, and then press Enter. The new paragraph automatically receives the next number or bullet.
Press Enter again to finish the list.
You can start a numbered list with any number.
