Creating Paragraphs in a Numbered List
If you're entering text in a numbered list and you find yourself frustrated because you need to add paragraphs but you can't do so without adding numbers, you should know that there's a simple solution. Press Shift-Enter instead of just Enter. Word 2000 recognizes Shift-Enter as a line break and not a paragraph break, and it doesn't insert a new automatic number. When you're finally ready to move on to your next numbered item, just press Enter as you would normally.
