Windows 7: Word 2013 can't stop auto format of heading multi level list

Word 2013 can't stop auto format of heading multi level list

Hi I'm having trouble preventing Word 2013 from automatically formatting a document. I have defined a multi level list associated with the headings style. If I have a line of text that has a number at the beginning of the line, word will automatically apply the heading style that corresponds with the number when instead I just want to create a bulletted list. The little auto format lightning bolt drop down does not appear at all. I have turned off every possible auto format and auto correct option there is, but word is still changing the format. Any help would be appreciated.

before:

1 heading one
1.1 sub paragraph
2 each

after:

1 heading one
1.1 sub paragraph
each

I don't use Word much these days, but having a look through my Word 2013, I see you might be able to make changes. With Word open select Design from the top menu & over on the RH side is Paragraph Spacing, click on that & from the drop down menu select Custom Paragraph Spacing.
This will open a selection of tabs you can use to change your document settings.
Click on Edit & scroll down to find one that says List Bullets. You can also select New Style & this will give you a lot more options that you can change.
Also note down at the bottom there is an option to select for This Document Only or for all Documents based on this Template.

I have not tried any of these options, but give it a try & see how you go. If you regularly want to us this style you can save it as a template as a basis for future documents.
