I am doing the same as you (but not in a legal situation) all the time and bullets or numbering from word can be variable when pasted into  writer. Some times the numbering continues from previous numbering and sometimes it starts again. Sometimes bullets paste as graphics characters and sometimes as a bulleted list.

If I right click the first character after the number I get the menu (image) below. LO

If you click into the number of the paragraph do the numbers highlight as (image) below. If not the pasted list may have pasted the numbers as plain text.

Another issue you may be facing is that the pasted text is pasted in with a style from the donor document that is different from the style that is in the recipient document. I use an intermediate document to cleanse unwanted styles from the donor document before pasting into the final recipient and this generally makes things work much better.

Thank you Robert.

Unfortunately neither of these two options work.

Hi bunk3m,

The document goes from paragraph 1 to 11 and then should have 11.1 to
11.9 but I end up with paragraph 1 to 20.

Go to paragraph, which shows '12'
Right Mouseclick > Demote One Level
... and so on for all following paragraphs ...

I don't have a "Demote One Level" but wish I did.

Could be you have to change the numbering:
Right Mouseclick > Bullets and Numbering > Customize
Goto Level '2', set 'Show sublevels' and set it to '2'.



When I go to Bullets and Numbering, Customize Goto Level 2 and show sublevels, LO Writer creates another set of bullets in front of the bullets imported from Word.

Aaaaaah.  This is driving me crazy.
