How to disable automatic lists.


Lists, numbered or bulleted, are an attractive way of organising text on a page.

But when you are finished with a list and want to get back to normal text format your Pages document may automatically format each new paragraph as a new list item.

You may also want to do a list manually by simply putting numbers or bullets at the beginning of some but not all sentences. And iWork automatically formats each paragraph into a list item.

There may me other situations when you don't want Automatic list detection.

To disable this function open Auto-Correction Preferences: Pages > Preferences > Auto-Correction Preferences. There uncheck the 'Automatically detect lists' option. iWork will stop annoying you with creating lists you don't want.
