When you apply automatic formats, the following rules apply:

AutoFormat for Headings

A paragraph is formatted as a heading when the following conditions are met:

  1. paragraph begins with a capital letter

  2. paragraph does not end with a punctuation mark

  3. empty paragraph above and below the paragraph

AutoFormat for Bullets / Numbering

To create a bulleted list, type a hyphen (-), star (*), or plus sign (+), followed by a space or tab at the beginning of a paragraph.

To create a numbered list, type a number followed by a period (.), followed by a space or tab at the beginning of a paragraph.

Note Icon

Automatic numbering is only applied to paragraphs formatted with the Standard, Text body or Text body indent paragraph styles.


AutoFormat for Separator Lines

If you type three or more hyphens (---), underscores (___) or equal signs (===) on line and then press Enter, the paragraph is replaced by a horizontal line as wide as the page. The line is actually the lower border of the preceding paragraph. The following rules apply:

  1. Three hyphens (-) yield a single line (0.05 pt thick, gap 0.75 mm).

  2. Three underscore (_) yield a single line (1 pt thick, gap 0.75 mm).

  3. Three equal signs (=) yield a double line (1.10 pt thick, gap 0.75 mm).
