Using Ordered Lists

Jarratt Isted Updated by Jarratt Isted

We've always hated seeing boring ordered lists in articles. When we started building HelpDocs we wanted something a little different.

Our lists are totally customized (and customizable). They match your brand colors, and look great on every device.

  1. Here's a numbered list
  2. A second number
    1. A sublist
    2. ...sublist...
    3. ......sublist......
Our default list schema is numbers > lowercase letters > lowercase roman numerals. You can override these styles with custom CSS 

Adding Ordered Lists in the Editor

  1. Hit ListsOrdered List
  2. Type your first list item and press Return
  3. On any subsequent items you can use Tab to add a sublist
  4. Hit Return twice to take it back a step
Pro tip
Use Shift + Enter to insert images between ordered lists and keep the numbers rollin'.

Restarting Ordered List Numbering

In the editor you'll see a + and - button to the left of the first numbered list item. You can use that to set the start number of that list. This is useful if you want to insert a table, image, or other block element between items in your list, and want to pick up where you left off.
