I'm typesetting a booklet that uses a Paragraph Style for a "numbered" list (I'm using A,B,C,D ...). Its probably a simple fix but I can't figure out how once I'm done with one list and move on to the next one later on, to have the numbering automatically restart there, i.e. with A instead of the list continuing the numbering from the previous list. The Mode option under Numbering Style doesn't include this kind of option – I tried the Start At option but this is what I get:

I don't see anywhere else to make this happen automatically. Right now I'm just using "Convert Bullets and Numbering to Text" option under Type → Bulleted and Numbered Lists in order to restart the lists. Again I'm sure this has been done a million times I just don't know how it's done.

    I tried very hard to understand your request, but I still don't get it. When exactly do you want that your paragraph restarts at "A"? After a certain paragraph style (title, list or whatever)? In that case, you just need to create a multilevel list. Please be more specific, using screenshot of what you want to achieve at the very end.

Place the cursor on the first paragraph of your second list, go to 'Bullets & Numbering' and change the mode from 'Continue from previous number' to 'Start At' and type '1' in the next box.

  • I did try that – in the edited post I put a screenshot of what I get when I try that, i.e. the same list item repeating. May 15 '17 at 18:31

    That apparently happens if you select all the paragraphs. Try just placing the cursor inside the first paragraph with no selection.
