Can you be a bit more elaborate about this? Point some of those bug
reports you mention. Now it's not even clear to me how should 'keep with
previous' even work.

I'll asume you are starting a list at the very bottom of the page.

List will start on a new page only if there is not enough room left on the
current page, and there is nothing you can do about it - if it's not
fitting the page, it can't be done (bug or not).

Paragraphs can be kept together only 'with next', because 'with previous'
is kinda done by default and free space on the page is limiting factor
which can not be overcome.

What you could do is reduce spacing inside of list and between previous
paragraph and list and hope it will fit or, what I would do, is CTRL +
ENTER to move previous paragraph on the next page too. Yes, that is not
what you are trying to do but it's the only way to keep them together.

You also could keep previous list item with next list item but I don't
think that other way around is even possible.

This is an old post, but I think the problem still exists: how do you
a list from starting a new page? "Keep with previous" would seem to do
and I don't find another solution.


Sorry, I was replying to a 2011 post via the web page. Here's the original

I want to "Keep with previous" rather than "keep with next" (for my 
beginning-of-list styles). I can see from searching that it's been 
discussed and bugs opened and such, for quite a while, but I don't 
think anything has come of it yet ... I wonder if anyone has worked 
out a way to do that, or is it just a manual thing to do - go through 
and apply Keep With Next, take it off where it no longer applies, etc. 

My problem is the same, and I'm not sure there's another way to solve it. In
specific, I've got some short paragraphs that are sometimes followed
immediately by lists that are related to their content. It's preferable not
to have those lists start a new page, especially when they follow a one-line
paragraph. Widow and orphan control don't help.

I suppose this could be a list-specific feature, but the idea is that the
first item would be forced to be on the same page as the preceding
paragraph, which would often mean that that preceding paragraph would have a
line bumped to the next page. I can do this manually with a page break, but
I'm looking for something automatic that would go in a style.

I would think this is not an unusual problem, even if it's not the most
common thing.
