Numbered List

If you select several paragraphs and then click the ‘Numbered List’ button on the toolbar, the Rich Text Editor inserts a number at the beginning of each paragraph, in ascending order:

If at the end of a numbered paragraph you press the ‘Enter’ key, the new paragraph will also begin with a number. To end the numbered list, press ‘Enter’ twice after the last item in the list.

To unset a numbered list, select it and then click the same button to deactivate the style.

If you place the cursor inside a numbered paragraph that is somewhere in the middle of a series of numbered paragraphs and you deactivate the ‘Numbered List’ button, that paragraph will no longer be numbered and the following paragraph’s number will be reset to 1.

To create a nested numbered list, click a list item in an existing list and press the ‘Tab’ key. The paragraph is indented and its number resets to 1. The number of the following paragraphs are decremented.


Note: In Mozilla/Firefox only, if you apply a numbered list to each paragraph separately (instead of applying it to a selection of several paragraphs), the numbering will be reset each time (each paragraph number will be set to 1).
