You can apply numbering to a paragraph manually or with a paragraph style.

To Apply Numbering Manually

To apply numbering manually, click in the paragraph, and then click the Numbering On/Off icon on the Formatting Bar.

Note.png You cannot apply manual numbering to paragraphs that are listed under "Special Styles" in the Styles and Formatting window.
  • When you press Enter in a numbered or bulleted list, LibreOffice automatically numbers the next paragraph. To remove the numbering or bullet from the new paragraph, press Enter again.
  • To change the hierarchical level of a bullet in a list, click in front of the paragraph, then press the Tab key.
  • To change the bullets or numbering format for the current paragraph only, select a character or word in the paragraph, choose Format - Bullets and Numbering, and then click a new format.
  • To change the bullet or numbering format for all paragraphs in the list, ensure that the cursor is in the list, choose Format - Bullets and Numbering, and then click a new format.
  • To apply the same bullet or numbering format to all paragraphs in the list, select all paragraphs, choose Format - Bullets and Numbering, and then click a format.

You can also use the commands on the Bullets and Numbering toolbar to edit a numbered or bulleted list. To change the numbering or bullet format, click the Bullets and Numbering icon.

To Apply Numbering With a Paragraph Style

Paragraph Styles give you greater control over numbering that you apply in a document. When you change the numbering format of the style, all paragraphs using the style are automatically updated.

  1. Choose View - Styles and Formatting, and then click the Paragraph Styles icon.
  2. Right-click the paragraph style that you want to apply numbering to, and then choose Modify.
  3. Click the Outline & Numbering tab.
  4. In the Numbering Style box, select the type of numbering that you want to use.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Apply the style to the paragraphs that you want to add numbering to.
