I have a bulleted list of numbers and I'd like each number to be followed by a thin double line. Any ideas how to do this?
Thanks very much.
I have no imagination! Could you post a screenshot? Thanks!

Use a paragraph border!
A paragraph border for each number? The list will go up to 200. Is there a way to automate this?
thats what the "text after" option in your bullet styles in for. see below. you can put anything you want in there.
Nope! If you wanna cover all the para, choose the shading stroke!
Thank you. Is there a way I can edit that line - to make it thinner or 2 lines right next to each other?
I tried doing what you posted Jonathan and that's really what I need to use. I just want to be able to edit that line, by making it different to the standard. It's coming out very thick and I want a much thinner line.
Sorry but truly bad way with totally no control!
If you introduce another point as an auto-num until 3 digits (200), here's another cool way:
Draw a graphic line and anchor it in the first para and associate it to an object style to get more controls.
Don't use a "tab" but a space to define the gap between text and numbering. Like that you will just need one para style!
Finally, play this simplistic regex:
I tried this idea - but I cant seem to get it work
As indicated in the Grep Find form, there are 2 chars to be selected in the first para (template)! …
• The "image anchor":
• … and the "special char that allows the re-alignment of the left side of the para":
Why include these 2 special chars in the Grep Find form?
Simply because if you finally want to change the "image" (here, a simple curved line with a gradient and an effect) everywhere, the regex will do it!
If more info about the Grep code I use, ask to the Grep experts.
Last point: you never get such a visual result trying to play with just an auto-num! 😉
Just For Comment, a more sophisticated game (… but always just 1 click!):
Here is a simple example of numbering with a vertical bar in the numbering area. Then added a character style to enlarge the type size and baseline shift. Left and first line indent take care of pushing the text over.
Thank you so much for the help. I'm working through it now. Really appreciated!
