Hi all, don't know if this is a known issue or not:

I'm am setting up numbered lists and want to save them as a paragraph style. The weird thin: As soon as I save the style, all numbers in the list switch to 1. Even if I just use the default settings from InDesign and then just try to save these as a style. What am I missing here?

That's because by default when you create a numbered list and save it as a style, the style records the bullets and numbering properties always starting at 1. You need to edit the style and go to the Bullets and Numbering section and change the mode to "Continue from Previous".

So this is what happens:

---

Typing list and selecting Numbered list (or whatever it's called in the english version)

1. First paragraph

2. Second paragraph

---

Then I select this, click on the paragraph style panel, and save it. Immediately the numbering changes:

1. First paragrah

1. Second paragraph

 

Working on the latest version under MacOS Catalina.

Would you mind sharing a screen shot of the numbering properties of the style in Paragraph Style Options > Bullets and Numbering after saving the style? Use the Insert Photos button on the toolbar in your reply (mountain range icon).

Thanks a lot! As InDesign, Illustrator and Acrobat are giving me headaches since two weeks now and the supoort's "solutions" don't solve anything, I couldn't reply earlier. I think this should be mentioned in the help section.
