Writer: sub numbering

I can not find out how to get sub-numbering to work. I need to have the main number with a sub-number below belonging to the same field. There is the main idea then below there is a break down of the main idea that has sub-numbering related to the main number. The style the sub-numbering is not relevant to me just as long as it relates to the main idea

I don’t understand what you mean. Give a clear example of what you try to achieve.

OQ is @larka06. See also guidelines for asking.

It seems you want something like this.

1. A
    1.1. Aa
    1.2. Ab
2. B
3. C

To do this, go to “2.” and Increase Indent. Then go to Format → Bullets and Numbering → Customize. Select the second level and change Show sublevels to 2.

@larka06: if you mean to create lists, type “list” (without quotes) in the text box located in the green stripe above, don’t hit “return” and wait for a while. All questions about lists will be listed. Choose the one closest to your expectation.
