Hi There,

 

Is there a way that I can create a numbered list that starts at a higher number?

(i.e. normally a numbered list starts at 1 but I'd like to start at 8 (as you can in Word))

 

Many thanks,

Jon

Acrobat is not a word processing application, like Word, so its capabilities in this field are much more limited.

Are you referring to static text, or is this text part of a form field, or a comment?

It's just static text.

I'm editing a document to propose changes which would subsequently be drafted by someone else using In-Design.

My current method is just to delete the numbering and type the numbers in manually.

So I was looking for  less onerous method.

Is there a way to make it connect with the list it should be connected to? I got something going:

1. example

2. example, and then straight to

1. It's not realising it's in a list
