I can tell you will have to do this on a per mtext basis.
We're looking to turn off the auto numbering bullets in MText. I know it's
a nice feature, but our notes that use multiple leveled numbered bullets and
AutoCAD tries to "help" more than we want. I don't know if there is a way
to turn it off, but it would be nice. Thanks,

It does appear that when un-checking "Allow Bullets and Lists" that it is a system variable (I believe that's why that option is grouped below the line in the pop-up menu when you right click to bring it up). It seems to effect the entire drawing and any other new or old drawings, including existing lists with bullets. That way AutoCAD will quit trying to help you create the list numbers/letters.
The option to select "Off" in the menu when you right click appears to be on a per individual MTEXT object basis (I believe that's why that option is grouped above the line with similar per MTEXT object options).
The issue I'm having is the similar to the previous post.
I have turned bullets and lists "Off" (per MTEXT object), as well as un-checked "Allow Auto-list" (system variable).
In my situation, I have a series of abbreviations in column format with the abbreviation to the left, a TAB-ed space, and the full word. Some abbreviations have a period (.) and some don't. I do not want any of my text to work as a bullet list in this MTEXT object only. I have selected all text and turned bullets "Off". When I close out the MTEXT object and open it again to edit it, it automatically recognizes my text followed by a period (.) as a bullet once again, even with "Allow Auto-list" un-checked?! (This is the same case with symbols like "℄" and "⅊".)
I have to once again select all text and turn "Off" bullets and lists, but then I lose my text I had as my abbreviation. The cycle begins again and I don't know an easy way of dealing with this.
Hope this makes sense and someone has an answer for me. I tried to attach a file with an example of what I'm talking about but I'm having problems with that too. I guess that's for another thread.
I was having this same issue and figured out how to fix it. If you have the allow bullets and lists option checked make sure that you also have the use tab delimiter only option also checked or it starts creating a list automatically after every period. With tab delimiter option checked it will only auto list after a tab.
At least this fixed the problem for me.
