This isn't a perfect solution - I don't know one
- but it should speed up this annoying task.
Say you have your large document, containing many lists, many of which will have numbering that follows on from an earlier list rather than starting with 1.
- Highlight all the items in the first list to which this problem applies.
- Right-click, and go to Numbering > Set Numbering Value...
- Make sure Start New List is selected (it should be, by default).
- Alter the value under Set value to: to 1.
- Click OK.
- Without doing anything else, go to the next list that has the numbering problem and highlight all the items in it.
- Type Ctrl-Y.
- Hopefully, hey presto.
- You will, however, have to do this for every list that has the problem.
Hope this reduces the workload enough to help
