How can I adjust the space between a list number and the text that follows the number? I sometimes need to list process steps that get into the double-digits, and from step 10 on up, there is no space between the list number and the text. I've looked all through the help and searched the menu options on RoboHelp 11, but cannot find a way to increase the space between the number and the text that follows. Please help!

You can do it in Microsoft Word - it's called Text Position on the customized list dialog. But there is no such setting in RoboHelp 11... at least not that I can find.
