Format text as numbered (ordered) list


#1

Is there not a way to format a block of text as a numbered list? Only bulleted lists appear to be supported in the UI and they are the only type of list mentioned in the Documentation on Typeography.

If not, is there a workaround other than just hard coding numbers into the block of text?


#2

Here are workarounds I’ve used. Would be curious if someone has come up with anything else.

To get an indented list along with numbers, in order of complexity:

  1. Use a bulleted list and just enter a number manually (after the bullet)

  2. Use a table with two columns. Style cells as needed, e.g., right-align first column for numbers, top-align both columns.

  3. Use a repeater with code to automatically insert numbers (via [[Item.index]] )

Drawbacks with all of these…

I recommend requesting a feature for numbered lists directly to Axure by sending email to support@axure.com


#3

Opted to go with #2 and use a table to get the desired effect as it gave me the look and was the easier item to maintain for a simple list.

Still odd to me that this needs a feature request and isn’t already supported.
