Adobe Indesign – Continuing a Numbered List in a new Section or following a Header.

Since these options are not available readily in the Bullets and Numbering section I scratched my head about this for a moment. After all I wanted my numbered list which is for a list of prose that must be numbered to continue after I placed a title for my new section. The answer was easier than I thought. So to save you the trouble, here is how to make it happen.

Create a Paragraph style and name it “Numbering 1” double click this new style to go into the Paragraph style options ensure that in the “Bullets and Numbering” section, the mode is set to “Start At”.

For your section of text that you want to have continuing numbers in create another Paragraph style and name it “Numbering 2” double click this new style to go into the Paragraph style options ensure that in the “Bullets and Numbering” section, the mode is set to “Continue from Previous…”.

That should do it!
