When I format a list as a list (numbered or bulleted) in Microsoft Word 2007, the text appears on the left of the list indicators (numbers or bullets).  So instead of looking like this:

1. The quick brown fox
2. jumps over a lazy dog

It becomes like this:

The quick brown fox   .1
jumps over a lazy dog .2

How do I fix it?


Make sure Left-to-Right-Text is checked.


Save this macro in menu - developer - visual basic editor, then menu - developer - macro - Correct_RtL - run

Sub Correct_RtL()
    ActiveDocument.Range(0, 0).Select
    Selection.Collapse direction:=wdCollapseEnd
End Sub

save file after it completes run.
