enter image description here As you can see, the number 2 is in bold font, even though the number 1 is not. I assume this is because the second item starts with a bold-font word. But aesthetically, this is terrible. Is there a way to avoid this automatic bolding feature? I can not select the number unfortunately.

There is currently no direct way for doing what you're trying to do. You need a workaround:

  1. Select M and use Ctrl+B to unbold it (This change is just temporary)
  2. Place your cursor on the left of M and go to Insert > Symbols
  3. Now here in the dialog box, Ensure that Font: (normal text) and form: Unicode(Hex) is selected.
  4. Type in the character code as 034f (also known as Combining Graphene Joiner) and click insert.
  5. Make 'M' Bold again by pressing Ctrl+B.
  • Nice! Alternatively, if your points are all one-liners and you're sure they won't line-break to a second line, you can just type a space ahead of each line and, optionally, adjust the offset from bullet to text using the ruler to move the text closer to the number. Marginally simpler, but falls apart with multi-line bullet points. Oct 15, 2021 at 15:18
