Create new styles for those paragraphs.
cheers, I was worried that might be the answer - I was hoping there is an alternative to that as that would require either getting the team writing the content to ensure that they remember to use multiple styles for lists so that when I import the Word document they've created I can match up the appropriate styles (or manually changing the styles every time there is a change to the content).
Right! … with a comment: use Grep and Multi-Find/change of Martinho da Gloria [ ;-) ] to treat this issue in one click!
It pains me that InDesign does not have this built in. It was available in Ventura Publisher 1.0 over a quarter of a century ago: "space between" was for paragraphs with the same name. I suggest putting in a Feature Request.
