Friends, Pages is my everyday word processor, but a current project is making me buggy! Preparing presentation notes that are a mix of paragraphs & simple numbered or alphabetized segments. I've set up a style for tabs, etc. Fine.

However, whenever I enter a number or letter and tab to the text, Pages defaults to one of the outline styles. Have been fighting it all day, and can't find anything in prefs to "turn off outline styles."

Any ideas, or should I just try another app? (Have Bean - a sort-of bare bones text app; also an older v. of MarinerWrite which I rarely use anymore. Then there's InDesign, though I haven't used it for routine text work.)

Try turning off "Automatically detect lists" in the Preferences.

Thanks Jack - Tunnel vision I guess. Found it in the "Auto correction" prefs, which I associate with spelling abbreviations, etc.
Much appreciated.

P.S. - Tried doing some option-tabs, option- returns, which helped here & there, but wasn't a universal solution.
