Numbered list affects alphabetical list's sequence

Recommended Posts

If you have a numbered list and it is accompanied by alphabetical list, the latter inherits the sequence from the former.
This can be fixed by setting the lists to different levels, but still I don't think they should be affected by each other's sequences.

I created the alphabetical style just by duplicating the numerical and changing the list type.

If it is at the same level, it is the same sequence, so this behavior makes perfect sense and should be expected.

Sorry mate, but no. Then it's another list altogether. You may have consecutive lists of different types and they all should start from 1 or A or whatever, not inherit the sequence of the former list.

Did you increment the level as well?

No, the sequence is inherited from numericals to alphabeticals when the level is the same or “no change”. I made a sample now.

The list style doesn't affect the sequencing. You can adjust levels have named Global lists or restart numbering manually to control the numbering. Please feel free to post in the discussions/suggestions forum if you think it should work differently
