List of AutoNumbering formats

I have taken over some documentation from an individual with no training in FM.  They made multiple AutoNumbering paragraph styles, and it is a mess.

Going through their documents manually to find all of their AutoNumbering formats is quite time consuming.

Is there a method to just pull the AutoNumbering formats and formatting data regarding such?

Heck, even just a list of the Paragraph Styles they made that use AutoNumbering would be a good start.

Thanks!

fwiw, I've taken a look at the .mif version of a file with both ordered- and unordered-list styles … perhaps at least discovering the style names could help, as then you could use the Find/Change on the .book or the .fm files to locate occurrences of the ill-defined.

The .mif code for both types of list includes a line <PgfNumFormat in the style definition; occurrences then include the prefix as <PgfNumString

ordered list

<PgfNumFormat `<n+\>\\t'>
<PgfTag `:ol'>
<PgfNumString `1\t'>

unordered list

<PgfNumFormat `•\\t'>
<PgfTag `:ul'>
<PgfNumString `•\t'>
