Fix Microsoft Word's Double-Digit Numbering Glitch

Microsoft Word's numbering option (for numbering lists and paragraphs) works wonderfully until you reach 10. The double digits mess up the indentation after the numbers because the extra digit pushes the text to the next tab setting. The result: ugly. To fix the spacing, move the first tab--along with the hanging indent--a bit to right. Highlight all of the ugly, numbered text, and select Format, Bullets and Numbering. Click the Customize button. Increase the setting slightly for the 'Tab space after' and 'Indent at' fields. These two fields should have the same number--0.7" will probably do. Finally, click OK.
