Numbering Style

Here you can create a Numbering Style. The Numbering Styles are organized in the Styles window.

When a Numbering Style is created, a name is assigned to the numbering. This is why such templates are also called "named" numberings. Unnamed numberings, which are used for direct formatting, can be created in the Bullets and Numbering dialog or with the icons of the object bar.
