Initializing Numbered Paragraphs: RESET

To reset the numbering of an outline paragraph to its initial value, use the RESET control command. If you do not use the RESET command, then the numbering of all outline paragraphs in a text is continuous. If you specify the name of an outline paragraph in the RESET command, then its paragraph numbering and that of subordinate paragraphs is reinitialized.

Syntax:

/: RESET paragraph_format

The paragraph format specifies the outline paragraph to be reset.

Assume that the paragraph N1 is defined in the style you are using. This kind of paragraph is intended for enumerated lists and causes a sequential number to be printed.
