Problem

When a numbered list is immediately followed by an IF instruction, the numbering is removed from the paragraph in the assembled document.

Solution

Word paragraph formatting (including numbering) is stored in paragraph markers at the end of each paragraph. If the IF instruction immediately precedes the marker, then the marker may be getting deleted.

To keep the numbering format from being deleted

  1. While editing the template, click the Show/Hide ΒΆ button. This shows the paragraph marks in the template. For example:IFnumbering1.png
  2. Add a few space characters between the END IF instruction and the paragraph mark, like this:Ifnumbering2.jpg
  3. You can also move the END IF instruction so it comes after the paragraph mark like this:IFnumbering3.jpg
