You have marked an answer Correct but it seems there is an outstanding issue with no dot appearing after the number. Correct? If that is still an issue go to the Format field where it shows <x>. You should be able to add a dot after that. www.grainge.org

I'm sorry, but I'm unsure how to check that. I just purchased the product a few months ago and have been slowly working on a knowledgebase.

Help > Updates will give you the patches that have come out since the initial release; post a screenshot of your RH screen to figure out if you're using the Classic version or New UI.

That's definitely the New UI - you want to use a multi-level list. Try looking at the RH Reimagined sample project or Peter's site - http://www.grainge.org/pages/authoring/rh_tour/index.htm#t=rh2019%2Fauthoring%2Frh2019_lists.htm

I reviewed his site but it's not helping with my any of my problems yet. As seen below, I'm in my default.css trying to edit my numbering. In the preview, it won't even add a decimal after the numbers. I'm confused.

That looks like the regular lists function - Peter talks about a multi-level list icon to be used.

Thank you for this thread. I had the same issue and I'm trying to figure it out as I'm learning.

@VivekKumar, I tried the multi-list option and here's how my numbering looks (see images attached). . I don't know why it appears this way. It appears that way in the default.css too. Please advice!

Amebr has pointed in the right direction. Multiple li looks like the culprit. I will suggest you take a backup of default.css file and then delete the 3 li styles just above ol.AlphaNumeric. Or if you can share your default.css then we can have a look.

It's probably to do with the multiple li styles defined. One or more of them probably have a list style set, but I think that should be controlled by the ol and ul styles only. It's hard to say though, without knowing how and why they've been set up (and the reasons may date back to super old versions of RH that had quirks and hacks).

This is my default.css > ol.AlphaNumeric

I can't figure out why my decimal is not showing in my numbered list.
