  • next highlight the block of text you wish to turn in to a list.

A Simple Numbered List

Top Tip

Rather than typing your items first you can hit the ‘Numbering’ icon before you start your list, and then type the list, when you get to the end of the list simply hit the ‘Numbering’ icon again to stop the list.
