Showing results for tags 'numbered list'.
The numbered list button in Publisher seems to work only if used at the top level and sequentially. If one tries to introduce a list entry hierarchically below the top level (e.g., "1. History ... a. 1960s"), a second listing number is introduced (i.e., "1. History ... a. a1960s"). If one tries to remove the extra "a", the list number disappears entirely and the entry is then converted to normal text, but as it seems with a different indentation than either the previous list or previous text. A workaround using text styles is possible, but cumbersome to use, and the numbering is then no longer automatic. A similar issue concerns footnotes and endnotes. One would wish a button to handle this. Currently, one must, it seems, use a text style as a workaround. One must then keep track of the numbering oneself. If one wants a footnote on the same page (rather than an endnote on a separate page), one has to insert a separate text frame so as to avoid having the footnote move if additional text in the main text frame is inserted. As there are very limited entries in the help section on these issues, I must assume that I haven't simply overlooked something obvious. If I'm wrong on this, I'd appreciate a hint from someone in the forum. If on the other hand my concerns are valid, I hope remedies will be offered in the next version, as both features seem to me fairly central in a professional DTP application like Publisher.
