Ok Sorry, I thought the change would be "only" : trigger the 
auto-numbering only when hitting .[Tab]

These remarks concern the way auto-numbering is applied, not on the trigger.

1. No use of styles

Current behavior not ok
- Formatting is imposed on the user
- This is a direct formatting (no style involved)
- So it must be redefined each time a list is created if the parameters 
are not suitable.

Current behavior ok
- By default, new lists start with the typed number and level implied 
(3.2.1 => third level)

Proposed behavior (if Tools> AutoCorrect Options> Options> 
Apply numbering - symbol > Checked)

When Hitting .[Tab] or <*>.[Tab] or <->.[Tab]... :
- Applying a list style (either Numbering1 or List1)
- The presentation is standardized in the document (same for each list 
in that style)
- Easy to customize

This would require changing the current behavior of the list style on 
the renumbering (don't restart by default today)

2. Only 3 paragraph styles

Auto-numbering only triggers for paragraphs in those styles.

If auto-numbering is proposed... is that it is useful (or will be more)
I can not explain the fact that it is active only for those three 
styles of paragraphs ?

I will be offline for two weeks starting Monday. Sorry for that...
