If you activate standard UL/OL lists for HTML output list bullet definitions are ignored. When standard lists are enabled only the default browser bullets are used.
Outline numbered lists are pretty much the same as normal numbered lists except that they also support multiple numbering levels and each level can have a different style. This is much easier to demonstrate than to describe:
1.This is the first level of an outline numbered list.
a.The is the second level of the list.
b.This is another second-level list entry.
2.This is another first-level entry in an outline numbered list.
a.This is a second-level entry. In this list second-level entries are numbered with a, b, c...
b.This is another second-level entry.
i)And this is a third-level entry. In this list third-level entries are numbered with i, ii, iii...
ii)This is another third-level entry. You get the general idea...
1.Click in a paragraph or select the paragraphs you want to turn into a list. Then select the bullets and numbering tool in Write > Paragraph. Display the quick gallery, then select Bullets and Numbering to display the bullets and numbering formatting dialog.
2.Select the Outline Numbered tab and choose the outline list style you want to apply:
3.Click on OK to create the list.
All the items in the list will initially be top-level items. See below for instructions on creating lower-level items.
Selecting in the Toolbar automatically creates a single-level list. However, you can add levels at any time by using the the Indent Tools in Write > Paragraph.
1.Click in the list entry you want to make a lower-level item.
2.Use the Indent Tools in Write > Paragraph to increase or decrease the level of the current item
See Formatting lists for information on changing the list indents.
Note 1: You can reset numbering at any point in a list. However, if you reset the numbering anywhere below the first list item, you are actually splitting the list into two lists.
Note 2: Reset numbering only works on the top level of a list. See Customizing outline numbered list definitions below for instructions on resetting the numbering of lower-level entries.
1.Select the part of the list you want to renumber. This will normally be the entire list, but you can also restart at any point in the list.
2.Select the bullets and numbering tool in Write > Paragraph. Display the quick gallery, then select Bullets and Numbering to display the bullets and numbering formatting dialog.
3.Select the Outline Numbered tab. This is important! If you try to reset numbering of an outline list in the normal Numbered tab you will get incorrect results! then select Restart Numbering to reset the list numbering to start at 1 or Start at: to select the number you want to start with:
1.Click in the list entry (for a single entry) or select the entire list. (It does not actually make much sense to change the appearance for a single list entry...)
2.Select Write > Bullets and Numbering. to open the Bullets and Numbering dialog and select the Outline Numbered tab:
3.Select one of the predefined outline numbered lists from the Gallery and click on OK.
OR select one of the definitions and click on Customize to modify the definition.
The Reset button resets all the list definitions in the Gallery to the default values. It is only active if you have edited a definition.
See Formatting lists for more details.
1.Select a list definition in the Outline Numbered tab (see above) and select Customize to modify the definition.
2.Edit the list definitions for each level of your list that you want to change by selecting the level number in the Levels box on the left. The results for each level are displayed in the Preview box on the right.
Note that there is a separate definition for each level of your outline numbered list! You must edit all the values for every list level that you want to change.
3.Click on OK to save your new outline numbered list definition to the Gallery. This will overwrite the current definition.
The Reset button in the Outline Numbered tab resets all the predefined lists to the default values.
See Formatting lists for more details.
You can choose a different numbering style for each level. Select the level from the list on the left, then select the numbering style. The selected style will be displayed automatically in the preview on the right.
This field allows you to enter characters to be displayed to the left and the right of the number for each level.
•<L1>, <L2>, <L3> and so on are the variables that enter the numbers in the list for each level. Don't change or delete these entries! Also note that the number of each variable must correspond to the level number. For example, <L1> is for level 1, <L6> for level 6, and so on.
•For each level, enter the characters you want to display with the list number to the left and right of the <Lx> variable.
(<L1>) will generate: (1), (2), (3)
Start numbering at:
This setting allows you to set the number at which numbering is to begin for the current level. The setting is stored separately for each level and must be set for each level.
Legal numbering style:
Activates legal numbering style for outline numbered lists, with all the list numbers at the left margin. Must be set separately for each level of an outline numbered list!
•You cannot have different indent sizes for individual levels in outline numbered lists. Because of this the legal numbering style is preferable for lists with large numbers of levels otherwise you would have a very large indent for the top level and smaller indents for the lower levels, which does not look so harmonious.
When this is selected the numbering of sub-levels in outline numbered lists always re-starts with 1 or the equivalent. Otherwise the numbering continues from one sub-level to the next. Must be selected separately for each level of the outline numbered list!
Changing the number of levels:
By default outline numbered lists have 9 levels. You can increase or decrease this number with the Count: setting. The maximum number of levels is 20. Even 9 is actually far too many – lists should never have more than four or five levels at the maximum, otherwise they are much too confusing for the reader.
