Simple numbered lists

Use #’s for numbered bullets. So, writing this:

# This bullet is automatically numbered as nr 1
# The hash signs are automatically turned into 1's and 2's
# This will become bullet 3

will turn into:

  1. This bullet is automatically numbered as nr 1
  2. The hash signs are automatically turned into 1’s and 2’s
  3. This will become bullet 3

Nested numbered bullets

Numbered bullets can be nested too.
2nd level numbered bullets will automatically turn into lower case alphabetic characters (a, b, c, d…).
3rd level numbered bullets will use roman numbers (i, ii, iii, iv ….).

Example code:

# First, open the Account Level Customization tab:
## Click the black Settings button at the top.
## Select the Customization tab.
# Then change the styling of the top bar:
## Choose if you want a flat or a gradient color.
## Pick the color you want as the background color.
## Pick the font color for the top bar
# Finally, choose colors for the topic body text:
## Pick the color H1, H2, H3 headers.
## Select the color to be used for links.

will give you:

  1. First, open the Account Level Customization tab:
    1. Click the black Settings button at the top.
    2. Select the Customization tab.
  2. Then change the styling of the top bar:
    1. Choose if you want a flat or a gradient color.
    2. Pick the color you want as the background color.
    3. Pick the font color for the top bar
  3. Finally, choose colors for the topic body text:
    1. Pick the color H1, H2, H3 headers.
    2. Select the color to be used for links.

Continuing numbering after a break

The numbering of bullets will automatically continue until the first blank line or other element that starts a new “block”. If you create more bullets after such a break, the numbering will start at 1 again.
Normally, this is what you want, but there are cases where you may want to continue the numbering of the first list. This is possible by simply appending an underscore to first hash sign after the break (#_).

Example:

# First
# Second
# Third

... breaking paragraph ...

#_ Fourth
# Fifth

Will give you:

  1. First
  2. Second
  3. Third

… breaking paragraph …

  1. Fourth
  2. Fifth
