Hey, 

I have been struggeling for a very long time but how can I add a secondary color in the numbering of Bullets & Numbering without converting the numbering to text.

I want to give the dot on the numbering another color. I don't want to do it manually anymore cause it's too much of work.

Hello @Humeyra5C94 

 

This isn't possible with just Bullets or number. Bullets and number is a all or nothing format. I know you didn't want to do a manual process, but if you look at paragraphy styles and Nested styles you would automatically format bullets yourself, using a character style to handle the dots.

 

You might need to play with this a little to get it working, but from a quick test it worked fine for me.Untitled-1.jpg

Simplify your auto-num to:  ^#

Include a Grep style: "Orange" + ^\.(?=\t)

 

… and run a simple regex as:  Find: ^. + para style  Replace by: .\t$0

 

For the end of the para, add a 2nd Grep style: "Orange" + [.…]$
