Applied styles (paragraph, character, and other types) are not affected by Clear Direct Formatting, only direct formatting applied on top of the styles. To remove formatting applied by a character or paragraph style, reapply the corresponding Default style.
To stop applying a direct format, such as underlining, while you type new text at the end of a line, press Shift+Ctrl+X.
Bullets and numbering are properties of lists. Clear Direct Formatting does not clear directly formatted bullets and numbering found in a paragraph. To remove the bullet and numbering applied directly to a paragraph, use the Toggle Unordered List, the Toggle Ordered List or the No List icons on the Formatting toolbar.
