Position (List Styles - Legacy)

Sets the indent, spacing, and alignment options for the numbered or bulleted list.

To access this command...

Choose Format - Bullets and Numbering - Position tab.


Level

Select the level(s) that you want to modify. To apply the options to all the levels, select "1-10". In Chapter Numbering, only one level can be selected, or use "1-10" to apply the options, except Paragraph style, to all the levels.

note

LibreOffice Writer uses the position controls shown here when opening documents that use a different method for positioning and spacing. For default controls see Position (List Styles).


Position and Spacing

Indent

Enter the amount of space to leave between the left page margin (or the left edge of the text object) and the left edge of the numbering area. If the current paragraph style uses an indent, the amount you enter here is added to the indent.

Relative

Indents the current level relative to the previous level in the list hierarchy.

Width of numbering

Enter the width of the numbering area. The numbering symbol can be left, center or right in this area.

Numbering alignment

Aligns the numbering symbol left, center, or right in the numbering area. The position might be adjusted to maintain the minimum space.

Note Icon

The Numbering alignment option does not set the alignment of the paragraph.


Default

Resets the indent and the spacing values to the default values.

Preview

Displays a preview of the current selection.

Load/Save

Saves or loads a chapter numbering format. A saved chapter numbering format is available to all text documents.

Note Icon

The Load/Save button is only available for chapter numbering. For numbered or bulleted list styles, modify the numbering styles of the paragraphs.


Reset

Resets changes made to the current tab to those applicable when this dialogue box was opened.

Apply

Applies the modified or selected values without closing the dialogue box.

This control appears only when modifying a List style.
