Windows 7: Microsoft Word Space between List and Words

Microsoft Word Space between List and Words

Hi, when using a list and a regular formatted text, they are separated by a page. On the left page, there is the regular text, and on the right page is a list I made.

Whenever I press delete at where the arrow is pointing, it deletes the words in the list, but not the large space.

How can I get rid of the space?

I'm guessing that there is either a page break or section break immediately after the text on the left hand page. To see it, click the "Show/Hide" icon as in the screenshot below. To get rid of it, highlight it then right-click and select "Cut" (for some reason, hitting delete or backspace doesn't always do it, but cut does), and then the list should jump back to start just under your text. If not, post back and we can try plan B

I have already fixed the problem.
First I made the words on the left page part of the list by highlighting them and clicking on one of the styles. Then I backspaced the numeral "I" or whatever symbol there was. After that I was able to change the words back to how I wanted them to be.

I tried replicating what went wrong before, but it works fine now. I can use enter to move down the list now without any problems.

Thanks for helping though. If this happens again I'll use the "show formatting" button to see what is wrong.
