Sometimes you need to add text below a numbered or bulleted item without creating another number or bullet. If you just press Enter at the end of a line, Microsoft Word will automatically insert the next item in the series with an accompanying bullet point or number.
There is however an easy solution using the keystrokes below.
- Click at the end of the line
- Hold down the Shift key
- Tap the Enter key
- Add your text
- When you want to add the next sequential number, hit the Enter key again.
Note: This is also handy when you are working with bullets in PowerPoint.
