Please do the following to make it easier.

  1. Open any topic for editing
  2. From the toolbar on the top, you will find 3rd button saying multilevel list
  3. Select the first one. This will add a style called "AlphaNumeric" in your css file
  4. Type text for different levels so that you are comfortable that you are getting different list style for different levels
  5. After this you have to edit this style to get what you are looking for.
  6. For that the screenshot pasted above is the right place. Just have you are editing ol, you have to edit ol.AlphaNumeric.

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, this is very helpful! Do you know why the decimal isn't showing up for my numbered lists?

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.
