Formatting Ordered Lists

Ordered lists provide different numbering styles for each indent level in a list, allowing
you to create a hierarchy of information. For example:

You can create a list using a numbering sequence as you proceed from the highest


level to lower levels: I, A, 1, a), (1), (a), i), (1), and (a).
You can create a legal list style, which appends an additional number or letter at


each lower level: 1, 1.1, 1.1.1, and so on.

You can also choose an ordered list style in the Styles drawer. Click the Styles Drawer
button in the format bar, and then select the list style. If you don’t see list styles in the
Styles drawer, click the List Styles button in the lower-right corner of the drawer to
make the styles appear.

To format an ordered list:


Place the insertion point where you want the list to begin.


Click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Text button, and then click List.


To create a legal style list, choose Tiered Numbers from the Bullets & Numbering pop-

up menu. Otherwise, choose Numbers.


Choose a numbering style from the pop-up menu directly below.


To adjust the space between numbers and the left margin, use the Number Indent

field. To adjust the space between numbers and text, use the Text Indent field.
