Applying the different levels of a list-numbered paragraph style

To apply the different levels of a list-numbered paragraph style:

  1. Type the first paragraph and apply the List 1 style. Notice that the level-1 list number is added automatically.

  2. Select View > Toolbars > Bullets and Numbering to display the Numbering toolbar (Figure 222).

  3. Press Enter to start the next paragraph. To make it a level-2 list item, click the “Down one level†icon on the object bar (Figure 222). The number applied to this paragraph has changed to a level-2 number.

  4. Continue typing list items, moving each paragraph up or down levels as needed.



One option is to enter all the list paragraphs first and apply the levels afterwards.

You can use keyboard shortcuts to move paragraphs up or down the outline levels. Place the cursor at the beginning of the numbered paragraph and press:

Tab Down a level
Shift+Tab Up a level

To insert a tab stop at the beginning of a numbered paragraph (that is, after the number but before the text), press Control+Tab.
