Are you happy with Writer's attempts at numbering the five items but
are merely having difficulty terminating the process? If so, when
you see the automatic "6." which is one too many, just press
backspace *twice* to get back to the normal
structure. (Incidentally, you shouldn't think in terms of a
"return-line space": that's typewriter thinking. Instead, use
vertical spacing applied to the paragraph or the paragraph style.)
How can I turn off all automatic formatting?
You may indeed want to suppress Writer's automatic numbering and
handle everything yourself. There are two ways to do this, and it is
useful to be aware of both.
o You can leave the automatic facility on but disable it locally when
it happens. The automatic formatting is applied when you press Enter
to terminate the first numbered paragraph. (It is a paragraph if it
is terminated by Enter, even if it is only one line.) Immediately
you see the change, go to Edit | Undo (or Ctrl+Z). This undoes the
automatic effect whilst leaving the paragraph break you wanted.
o Alternatively, if you simply want to disable these attempts by
Writer to be helpful, go to Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Options
and remove the tick from "Apply numbering - symbol: *".
I trust this helps.
